Hazard - watched Manchester derby

Eden Hazard has intensified rumours of a move to either Man City or Man Utd after taking time out to attend the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night, according to the Daily Mirror.

Hazard has become one of Europe’s most wanted players after another excellent season at Lille, and the 21-year-old has confirmed his intent to move to the Premier League this summer. Hazard recently said:

“My objective­ is the Premier League, I want to play in England.”

“My objective is to go to the Premier League, because I have had my time in France,” he said.

“Maybe in the future I will return to France but for now I am concentrating on finishing the season with Lille to the best of my ability, and then going to England.”

Quoted in the Mirror

ESPN claims the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Tottenham are all in the running for the Belgian playmaker, but rumours have intensified that he could be heading to Manchester after being spotted in the crowd at the Etihad on Monday, where he watched City beat Utd 1-0.

The Mirror reports that City’s Patrick Vieira and Man Utd scout Martin Ferguson were in the stands to watch Hazard score and set up the winner as Lille beat PSG 2-1 on Sunday evening, before the player returned the favour by making the trip to the Etihad the following day.

    I would love him to come to Spurs,but how can we compete with the big boys.Tottenham would suit his style of play,and he would get all the game time he wants.

    Hoddle suits your style of play???? What else can you offer??? Nothing compared to the other sides.

    Arsenal don’t need a player like Hazard who whores himself out to every club.He will end up with the money men because he’s a narsi mark 2.

    He wont go to Arsenal because Wenger already thinks he has a perfect squad lool…..Walcott, Gervinho, Ramsay, Diaby, Benayoun, Djourou, Gibbs and Mertesacker are all players any top 4 club would ship out yet Wenger has faith in them for some reason.

    He will put all his eggs in one basket with Ryo Miyachi.

    The most realistic big name signing Arsenal may get this summer is MVila if nobody else goes for him
