Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has made a huge demand from Los Blancos supremo Florentino Perez in a bid to sign Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, according to report.

Zidane told Perez to sell Marco Asensio in a bid to create space for the Belgian superstar, the young Spanish remains one of the president’s favourites and it will be difficult for him to cash in on the former Real Mallorca star.

The pair have been discussing over transfers plans and the coach has made his interest known to the board and to the president, he demands Hazard should be signed at all cost, according to Diario Gol.

Asensio has been struggling for form this season and Zidane can’t see Hazard and Asensio play together on the same team as he encourages Real Madrid president to let go of the Spanish under 21 star.

Hazard has refused to two contract proposals at the Stamford Bridge and wants a move to play under the management of Zidane at Real Madrid

Meanwhile, today's report confirms comments made by Hazard's father Thierry last week.

"Eden has refused a contract extension so to be able, if necessary, to follow interest from Real Madrid”.
