Zinedine Zidane has been a long-term admirer of the Belgian midfielder.
And according to Spanish reports, he’s ready to use Bale as bait to land his top target.
Bale has struggled for form and fitness in recent months.
Following nearly five years at the Bernabeu, his time in Spain appears to be coming to an end.
Hazard meanwhile has been in sensational form since recovering from an ankle break last season.
Speaking earlier this season, Premier League legend Steven Gerrard suggested it was inevitable that La Liga’s elite would come calling.
“You need to have that confidence and that aura about you,” Gerrard said.
“I think when he’s in that form he’s the best in the Premier League for me.
“I think performances like that in this competition, if you keep producing them on a regular basis, I mean Frank (Lampard) won’t thank me for this or the Chelsea fans, but the likes of your Real Madrids and Barcelonas come knocking.
“Liverpool have got a similar problem with (Philippe) Coutinho.
“It’s performances like that when the real big hitters come.”
