Zinedine Zidane has confirmed Eden Hazard is close to making his latest Real Madrid comeback with the Belgium international desperate to prove his fitness ahead of possible Champions League reunion with Chelsea.

The 30-year-old fulfilled a long-held ambition when he joined the Spanish giants in the summer of 2019 but he has fallen a long way short of justifying his £89million fee.

Hazard’s first season with Real was undermined by a troublesome ankle injury which required surgery just over a year ago.

The former Chelsea star has again suffered with injuries this term and has been restricted to just 14 appearances in all competitions.

Zidane has been without Hazard for the best part of a month, during which his side has closed in on the La Liga summit following a win over Barcelona and reached the last four of Europe’s premier club competition having knocked out Liverpool in comprehensive fashion.

Hazard’s old club stand between Zidane and fourth final as a manager in the Champions League with the first leg due to take place in 10 days’ time, with the return leg scheduled to take place in west London a week later.

On the chances of Hazard featuring against Getafe on Sunday, Zidane said: ‘You will see the squad for tomorrow’s game later.

‘He is feeling very better and he is ready. He wants to be back more than anyone else.’

‘We have been more cautious with Carvajal and Hazard, because they are relapses. They are both better and that is good for the team.’
