- Zinedine Zidane believes that no player can replace Cristiano Ronaldo
- Real Madrid has identified Eden Hazard as their main target for the summer
- But Zidane feels that even the Chelsea man cannot fill Ronaldo's boots
- Madrid has experienced a terrible season after the sale to Juventus
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has admitted that it will be virtually impossible to find a suitable replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Frenchman has identified the Eden Hazard of Chelsea as his main target for the summer window, but he does not believe that even the Belgian star can fill the void that Ronaldo left when he joined Juventus last year.
The exit from Ronaldo has had a significant impact on Madrid with the Spanish giants 13 points behind their arch-rivals Barcelona in La Liga and will end the trophyless season.
Zinedine Zidane believes that even Eden Hazard cannot fill the void of Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid
On Monday evening they were able to finish immediately with Leganes and this season were too dependent on Karim Benzema, who scored their last five goals.
Gareth Bale was to be Ronaldo's heir to the throne, but has had a disappointing season and only scored 14 times.
The club's chefs are no longer patient and are prepared to throw money for the problem with Zidane who has already prepared his emergency plans for a summer squeeze.

Madrid has made it no secret that Hazard is the man they want and that they are increasingly confident that they will join them and add the offensive spark that their team has lost since their loss to Ronaldo.
It is clear that Madrid has not been deterred by the £ 100 million price tag from Chelsea and is ready to submit an offer for the future.
Reports in Spain have even suggested that they went on a house hunt for the Belgian international in the chic Pozuelo district.

Ronaldo introduced himself to score a score head for Juventus during the Champions League match at Ajax
The Chelsea man has had another great campaign, scoring 19 times and registered 12 assists at all competitions, but Zidane is still not sure if he can fill Ronaldo's boots.
& # 39; The problem is that Cristiano [Ronaldo] could not be replaced, & said the boss of Madrid.
& # 39; He is gone, but we can take every player and the player who comes will not do the same as Cristiano. & # 39;
The Portuguese star helped Madrid to win four Champions League titles during his nine years
The Portuguese star was the figurehead on the part of Madrid, who canceled three consecutive Champions League and regularly topped the score tables.
He scored a staggering 450 goals for the club in 438 games during his nine-year stint in the Spanish capital and is the spearhead of Juventus & # 39; attack on the Champions League this season.
But although Zidane may feel that Hazard will not be able to replicate those numbers, he has outlined other options that will undoubtedly add strength to his team.
Madrid also has an eye for Paul Pogba, Christian Eriksen, Timo Werner and Sadio Mane from Liverpool, who are preparing for a huge summer win.
