Teenage attacker Eden Hazard has revealed that were he ever to leave Lille, it would be to either Real Madrid or Arsenal.
The 19-year-old Belgian starlet is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in Europe and has played a key role in Lille's Ligue 1 title challenge and Europa League run this term.
His form has caught the eye of a number of major clubs and France legend Zinedine Zidane has recently come out to sing his praises.
He said: "He can become a great footballer. He is a star of the future."
Hazard expressed his delight after hearing Zidane's comments, and listed the Frenchman's former club Madrid, as well as Arsenal, as possible destinations should he leave Stade Metropole.
"Such praise makes me very happy, especially from Zidane," he said.
"If one day I leave Lille, I will go to Real or Arsenal."
