talkSPORT was told earlier this week that Real Madrid would reveal their new kit on Friday – but they wanted Chelsea star Hazard to model it
Real Madrid have unveiled their new kit for the 2019/20 season – but Eden Hazard is not featured in the video.
Hazard is set to join Los Blancos from Chelsea in a deal worth up to £130million, and talkSPORT was told earlier this week that the Spanish giants wanted the transfer completed before they released their new strip.
This is because Real wanted Hazard to model the 2019/20 jersey, which features the return of a gold trim on their classic white shirt.
But Hazard, the Belgium forward, is not in the video revealing the kit – meaning Real Madrid fans have to wait even longer for official confirmation of his transfer.
While Hazard may NOT be in the video, there is one surprise for eagle-eyed viewers.
Gareth Bale is a shock inclusion in the clip, despite Real Madrid wanting to sell the Wales forward this summer amid interest from Premier League clubs.
Zinedine Zidane is said to not want Bale around any longer, and Manchester United have been linked with him, while a potential return to former club Tottenham has also been suggested.
However, the 29-year-old’s inclusion in the video suggests he will remain at the Bernabeu for next season – even if he is not in Zidane’s plans moving forward.
