Maurizio Sarri revealed he is unbothered by the rumours that resurfaced linking Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

Following the return of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid, rumours are rife the Spanish giants will embark on a summer spree that will see Hazard move to the Bernabeu.

The 28-year-old Belgium international has not hidden his intentions to join Los Blancos and Zidane’s return could even facilitate the move after admitting he was one of his footballing idols growing up.

Earlier this year, when asked by France Football if a move to Real would please him, Hazard said: “Why not? You know it very well. You’re asking the question, but you know what the answer will be so you don’t have to ask it.”

Chelsea boss Sarri was coy about the star’s future in a recent interview and openly admitted he wasn’t bothered about his future.

“You have to ask to Hazard (about Zidane) I think,” Sarri said on Wednesday via Sky. “I don’t know at the moment. I didn’t speak with Eden about Zidane.
