Real Madrid firmly put themselves back into the running for the La Liga title after a convincing 2-0 win over Eibar on Saturday.

Los Blancos secured the win courtesy of goals from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema, and are now only three points behind Atletico Madrid at the top of the table. Diego Simeone's side, however, have a game in hand.

Zinedine Zidane will know that his side have a crucial two weeks ahead of them, as they have El Clasico sandwiched in between their two legs against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The next two weeks will decide whether Real Madrid can end the season with silverware.

With that being said, here is the latest Real Madrid news on 4th April, 2021

Belgian forward Eden Hazard has reportedly been passed fit to face Liverpool on Tuesday.

Hazard was sidelined with a muscle injury he sustained early last month, but now it seems the Belgian has recovered in time for Real Madrid's UCL clash.

According to Marca, Zinedine Zidane will make the final decision on whether or not to include Hazard in the matchday squad. Earlier this week, the Frenchman said the club would not rush Hazard back into the squad. It remains to be seen what Zidane will decide on Tuesday.

Manchester United are reportedly planning a move for Lucas Vazquez in the summer. The Spaniard will be a free agent at the end of the season as he is yet to come to an agreement over a new deal at Real Madrid.

According to Sport, Manchester United see Vazquez as the perfect back-up option for Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right flank. The Spaniard has completely reinvented himself as a bombarding full-back this season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the Real Madrid man's versatility could be very beneficial to his squad.
