He made this known after his medical on Thursday.
The Belgium star said, “Zidane was my idol. He’s Real Madrid’s manager, it was important for me that he is here but not a defining factor because I always wanted to play here.
“It’s up to him where I will play but I prefer as a number 10 maybe slightly to the left.”
Hazard, who mostly took penalties at Chelsea, also expressed his wish to take on the responsibility at the Santiago Bernabeu, ahead of captain Sergio Ramos.
“I don’t think there’s one star at Real Madrid, it’s a team of star players,” he said.
“I was at Chelsea for seven years and now I am the new boy.”
“Penalties? I think our captain takes the penalties well, I think he’ll continue to take them. I don’t think he will ask me to,” he added.
