"After a discreet season so far, Zidane feels let down by the player and as things now stand will request that the club offload the player in the summer transfer market should the French coach remain on the Santiago Bernabeu bench next season".

But as their title defence has stumbled domestically this term, the 25-year-old has found starts harder to come by.

Hazard was key as the Blues cantered to Premier League glory last term in Antonio Conte's first season in charge and though Chelsea's title defence has fallen away this time around, the Belgium global has been in imperious form.

Reports in Spain claim that Los Blancos are looking to offload Isco in order to bring in Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Real are thought to be his preferred destination, as he stalls over signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

It's safe to say things have not gone according to plan for Real Madrid this season.

To make room for him in the squad, Chelsea were believed to be interested in taking Isco as a replacement. My intention was to succeed here, in the team that put their trust in me when I was at Malaga.

But the USA denies those connections and sees the YPG as a key ally in the battle against the Islamic State. He said Erdogan and the Turkish media were "trying to cover the Turkish army's failure in Afrin".

But the speculation has re-emerged after Isco lost his place in the Real's team following the return from injury of Bale.

Materazzi would go on to lift the World Cup after a dramatic penalty shootout, with Fabio Grosso scoring the decisive spot-kick, leaving Zidane empty handed is his last ever game as a player.

"No offer has been received for him since the summer anyway and not from Liverpool".

But Zidane has all but ended the debate after claiming that Isco is going nowhere. "I was asked before [during the January transfer window] why weren't we going to sign anyone", Zidane said.

"He is very good, as he has shown and as he will always show".

But when asked about Isco's future prior to Saturday's clash with Real Sociedad, Zidane responded: "I'm glad you've asked me". He a very good footballer. It's a lie [that we want to sell to sell him].
