Eden Hazard has admitted it would be a “dream” to play under Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

The Chelsea forward has reportedly been a target for the European and La Liga champions in the past and Hazard says Zidane is one of his idols.

And the Belgium star also admitted in would be a pleasure to work again with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

In an interview with Belgian TV channel RTL, Hazard said: “Everyone knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player, but also as a manager. He was my idol.

“I do not know what will happen in my career in the future. However, for sure, to play under Zidane would be a dream.

“I am enjoying life at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to achieve with them. I am focused on playing for Chelsea.

“Of course [I would enjoy working with Mourinho again]. I like facing him also as an opponent. If we were to work together in the future it would be with pleasure.”

Mourinho was sacked as Chelsea boss for a second time in 2015 and Hazard admitted that period at Stamford Bridge was one of the worst in his career.

“There have been a few [bad times in my career],” he said. “We have had a few managers over time, which is not great.

“Mourinho was sacked the year after we won the league. In terms of selection I have known some highs and lows too. It wasn’t always great.

“There have been a few [highs]. The double with Lille was a special moment. To win with Chelsea, I am not saying it is easy, but it’s a big club so we are more used to winning.

“At Lille we’re not used to it – we won the French Cup and the Ligue 1. That will rest with the supporters for a long time.”
