'Everyone wants Neymar, Mbappe' - Tuchel replies to Perez

Edging closer to the exit door

Edging closer to the exit door

I think it's a sad situation for English football if we lose a prestigious talent like that, because he is a very talented player and I don't think Real Madrid and Barcelona are bigger clubs than the English clubs anymore.

The Belgian forward is back on Real's agenda following the return of Zinedine Zidane in the Bernabeu dugout.

Zidane returns to the club much-loved, having won an unprecedented three consecutive Champions League titles as manager before resigning in May past year.

The reappointment of Zinedine Zidane as Madrid manager just ten months after he quit from the same position has thrown Hazard's future at Chelsea under sharp speculation.

Mbappe and Neymar have been constantly linked with moves to the Spanish capital, but PSG have insisted they are not available and both players have insisted that they won't be leaving this summer.

Perez said: "Zidane is French, so with Mbappe he could do something, no?"

So who would Perez prefer?

As per a report from ESPN, Premier League giants Chelsea fear that they will not be able to hold on to Belgian wing wizard Eden Hazard beyond the summer, amid rising interest from Real Madrid and have made a decision to demand a transfer fee of at least £100 million from the reigning European champions.

It remains to be seen if either will depart France for Spain this summer, but Perez's comments will certainly excite the Madrid support.

Chelsea take a commanding 3-0 lead into Thursday's second leg in Kiev, but Sarri refused to guarantee that unsettled academy prospect Callum Hudson-Odoi - who came on as a substitute to score his team's third goal at Stamford Bridge - will be picked to start.

The 46-year-old won nine trophies at Madrid and is considered a hero by supporters after managing Real in one of the club's most successful eras.
