Agent Confirm’s Wenger Tried To Sign Eden Hazard & Hints At Future Move

By on October 12, 2011

The agent of Lille star Eden Hazard has admitted his client will be ready for a move next summer, and hinted that Real Madrid could be his next destination.

The Belgium international is highly regarded in Ligue 1, with the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid and Arsenal chasing the gifted winger.

Speculation has been mounting that Real Madrid where favourites to land the 20-year old, with Director of Football Zinedine Zidane keen to land Hazard and making personal calls to persuade him his future lies at Madrid, but his agent insists the presence of the French legend will not dictate his move next summer.

Bico also confirmed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger tried to sign Hazard in the summer but was knocked back his current club:

“He has shown from the beginning of the season that he is able to play for any of the big clubs, including Real Madrid,” representative John Bico told Mirror Football.

“Eden has matured in every aspect. Perhaps next summer will be the moment to leave in search of the biggest challenge.

“Arsene Wenger wanted the player but Lille said no to the sale last summer. It’s certain that Real Madrid have been watching.

“I don’t think [Zinedine] Zidane’s presence will necessarily decide things. Zidane has always praised him but that, on its own, will not be sufficient,” he concluded.

    If it’s really true that Arsenal wanted Eden Hazard how come they didn’t they sign him? We have heard similar boring stories about Christiano Ronaldo, Samuel Eto’o, Yaya Toure etc. This sounds like a vain attempt by Arsenal to cover-up for failing to sign stars and stuffing the club with mainly junk players and clowns. Arsenal and Arsene Wenger must shape-up or completely shut-up!!

      Because last season Lille unequivocally stated that Eden Hazard was not available at any price. So Arsenal did want him, but they were never going to get him as Lille refused to sell last year.

    It’s the sosIe same old story.We couldhave got Ronaldo because MU had more money.They why pay a bi sum for Walcott and Chamberlain?
    Walcott has been given six years to prove he has the wc potential. Sadly the jury is still out.
    Maybe it’s not his fault. One week he is on the wing and another week as central striker. Not everyone can be Henry.
    Every game is a must win from now on if the gunners want to get hold of the 4th place. IIf you are out of cl reckoning ,getting in could be a big ,big problem.hopefully Wenger can finally prove he till has the knowhow to lift the gunners.If not, he is as good as gone.
