The first one is Eden Hazard, 20, recently crowned Champion of Ligue 1 with Lille, confirming that he is one of the new talents in French football. He was the best player of the French tournament, proving to be a leader prepared to take the leap to a big team. The footballer, Belgium international, has confirmed all the expectations that Zidane had put on him. The former Real Madrid player has warned to Real Madrid for months on the quality of a player with some unusual conditions.
"I would sign Hazard for Madrid with my eyes closed. I would sign him", said Zidane. Real Madrid has long known that that he is a player who must be taken into account, who is growing to succeed in a great team and this season has taken a leap in quality. In favor of Hazard is also his mentality. He is a boy "made in Zizou", focused and humble. The team that gets the player, would get a player with a great future and will not be disappointed by his behavior off the pitch. An exemplary player.
|Hazard and Varane|
The other player is Raphael Varane,18 years old, central defender from Lens. The young footballer who made his debut in Ligue 1 this season (French international under-21) is a valued player of the European market, because the Lens has fallen to the Ligue 2.
Varane has a contract with his current club until 2015 but has expressed his desire to leave the team. "I want to continue learning in top level competitions to develop my career", he said about the possibility of going abroad. Manchester United, for example and according to L'Equipe, has offered 10.5 million euros for a central defender who attracts the interest of a dozen teams: Barcelona, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Malaga, Borussia, Lille, Lyon, PSG...
The player is outstanding for domination of the aerial game (1.91m and 85 kg). This season he has played 23 games and scored two goals. Lens, however, ended the season in the penultimate position, as the second most thrashed team (58 goals). But Wallemme, the coach who gave him the opportunity to play in Ligue 1, highlights his enormous potential: "I was impressed by his expertise and serenity". Zidane, who has assumed more importance after the dismissal of Valdano, will be attentive.
