Madrid - Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly keen to sign N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, after sealing a surprise return to the Bernabeu on Monday.

Zidane left Los Blancos at the end of last season, but is back at the helm following the sacking of Santiago Solari, and that could spell bad news for Chelsea as the Frenchman is planning a double raid on Stamford Bridge.

To get Zidane back on board, Real have promised him huge funds to strengthen his squad in the summer, and the wheels are already in motion with a view to landing his top targets.

Some reports have even suggested Real officials contacted Chelsea to sound them out about Hazard's availability in the summer, before they confirmed the appointment of Zidane yesterday.

Hazard has always said what a huge admirer of Zidane he is, and now he is back at the Bernabeu, it would be no surprise if the Chelsea star refused to sign his new deal and pushed for a move when the window re-opens.

Meanwhile, France international midfielder Kante is also a target, with some press reports suggesting Zidane would take him before Hazard if he could only sign one of the duo.
