Eden Hazard Most Popular Name in Real Madrid Fan Transfer Target Poll

Spanish publication AS (h/t Daily Mirror) held a poll among Real Madrid supporters asking them which of the club’s summer transfer window targets they would most like to see in a white shirt next season. Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard, who by all indicative clues will be making the switch after the Europa League Final on May 29, topped the list. 

Six names were presented and more than 160,000 respondents showed up. While Hazard topped the list, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba came in dead last. That’s very interesting, especially when you consider how Hazard was regarded the biggest snub from the PFA Team of the Year plaudit, and Pogba the most undeserving player to get awarded a place in the side.
