Newcastle are wasting their time tracking Lille teenager Eden Hazard. Chris Hughton has had tabs on him all season, but the youngster has eyes on the big fish. Hazard has listed Real Madrid and Arsenal as possible future destinations should he ever leave the Stade Metropole. Hazard, 19, is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in Europe and Zinedine Zidane said of the young Belgian yesterday: "He can become a great footballer. He is a star of the future." Hazard: "Such praise makes me very happy, especially from Zidane. If one day I leave Lille, I will go to Real or Arsenal."
