The Brazilian forward is considered to be the leading candidate to strengthen Barcelona's squad this summer, but with Chelsea's reluctance to sell the 29-year-old, the Blaugranas have made a decision to move over to plan B: Eden Hazard.

Hazard said that his country will find it hard to beat France if Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kante "is at his best" for Les Bleus.

Real Madrid are on the verge of losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus and will undoubtedly look at a number of big stars to replace their Portuguese talisman. Real Madrid are also believed to be interested in the 27-year-old.

Olivier Giroud has admitted that there is little to separate Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappe ahead of France's showdown with Belgium in the World Cup semi-finals.

"It is true that [Zidane] is special, but Madrid makes everyone dream".

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how France who were champions at the 1998 FIFA World Cup will on Tuesday night, July 10, face Belgium who have never won the World Cup title in the seminal of the Russian Federation 2018 tournament.

"I think Eden is in a great moment of his career", Martinez said before the tournament.

"The white shirt is special but the blue shirt suits me well, so everything is fine here". The competition ends this weekend, which is when activity can be expected in the transfer window. "We don't know if the manager is leaving".
