Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has praised Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in these days.

The 44-year-old added: “If you want to put another central midfielder into the mix then it becomes complicated. Fabregas is a great player but it is not very straightforward. I am going to end up with a squad where three or four players do not get selected. To therefore put another player in there makes it difficult.”

Cesc Fabregas’s agent has reportedly offered him to Real Madrid, according to Sport.

Speaking about José Mourinho’s new job at Manchester United former England and Spurs manager Glen Hoddle stated the Special One has got a tough job but, at the same moment, has a dig at Chelsea:

“There’s a pressure there, without a doubt,” Hoddle claims.

“I think he knows now that he might have thought Chelsea was a big club. I think he knows now that Manchester United is a bigger club.

“Through his pre-season he’ll realise the expectations are massive. But then again you’ve got to look at his pedigree, he’s already managed Real Madrid which is probably the biggest in the world.”

“Obviously all clubs want the best players but he is a Chelsea player.”

Last night Chelsea lost 3-2 to Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.

They were 3-0 down until Eden Hazard came off the bench to score twice in the last 10 minutes.

Hazard played as a striker when he bagged his goals and that could suggest a change of position for the Belgian going into the new Premier League season, even more so with Diego Costa‘s future at Stamford Bridge more than a little unstable.

After the friendly game won 3-2 against Chelsea, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane claimed that Alvaro Morata won’t move from the Merengues for the upcoming season:

“He is a Real Madrid player, we are really happy about him. He came back home and I am sure this year he will stay here”.
