Pep Panic As Real Madrid In Contact With Man City Brahim Diaz

Real Madrid is ready to drop their interest in Tottenham ace Dele Alli in favour for another Premier League starlet.

Real president Florentino Perez is in the market for a new attacking midfielder and is shopping in England for a solution.

Alli has been under consideration, however, Diario Gol says Perez is now switching his focus to Manchester City whizkid Brahim Diaz.

Tied to City until 2019, Diaz’s representatives are already in talks with Real intermediaries.

The midfielder, who joined City three years ago from Malaga, enjoys a huge reputation in Spain but is yet to force his way into manager Pep Guardiola’s senior plans.

Guardiola is aware of Real’s approach and has already spoken to Diaz, urging him to be patient.

Perez Places Harzard On Priority List For R’Madrid

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard is back on the agenda of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Perez has been pushed by coach Zinedine Zidane over the past 12 months to bring Hazard to Spain. The Frenchman rates the Blues ace as a priority target.

However, any move for Hazard over the summer was put on the backburner due to his ankle injury and Perez’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe before his move from Monaco to PSG.

The Chelsea ace is now back on the agenda, with Perez and Zidane discussing him this week after seeing Hazard’s playing return over the past month.

Just this weekend, Hazard told SFR Sport: “I still have a career to do, I still have several years to go, I am at Chelsea for now, but I do not know where I can finish later.”

Interestingly, talk of a new contract for Hazard has gone quiet in recent weeks.
