Garcia – Eden Hazard Set For Lille Exit

By on October 26, 2011

Lille have admitted they are expecting Eden Hazard to leave the club soon and are already thinking of ways to replace the exciting winger.

Hazard has shot to prominence in the last 18 months with his scintillating performances in Ligue 1, helping Lille to the French championship last season. His impressive form alerted Arsenal who were thought to be close to agreeing a £22m deal for the Belgian in the summer.

However, a move failed to materialize and now some of Europe’s elite have entered the fray with Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Tottenham all linked with a move for the £35m rated star.

Now Lille coach Rudi Garcia has admitted it is only a matter of time before Hazrd leaves the club and they are already thinking of ways to replace the 20-year-old:

“We’re thinking about it, of course, but it is still a little early at the moment.

“It would be very hard to replace a player of Eden’s calibre. We’ll see what we can do, but for the moment we are making the most of his presence here.”

The Chairman of Lille has also passed comment on the situation, stressing the club will have the means to replace Hazard when he leaves:

“If he and we are in agreement with him leaving, I don’t know what his price will be at the end of the season,” he said.

“What is certain is that we will have the means to recruit after he has gone.”

    We need to lower our expectations, we might have the money to buy top players, but unless they are fans of LFC, we can’t expect top players to come in to a club that cant guarantee top flight football.

    The quicker we realise this the more focused the supporters can be.

    LFC need CL football in order to tempt players like Hazard. But if CL is back at Ainfield LFC is as good destination as any , except maybe City.

    LFC owners have spent but not as much as it was claimed do to LFC’s sales.
    I hope they will have that in mind and invest hevily in the coming transfer windows.

    City has spent but they are benefiting from it.
    I don’t understand why no one like City owners bought LFC, a club with history and capacity. Insted, LFC gets owners who will always have their own financial interest in mind first and dont really care about titles, more about maintaining fans and selling merchandise.

    Long wait for LFC to became force major force in English football.

    He aint british and he aint over priced, so I guess we wont be getting him.
    Funny how easily we signed Carrol without hesitation. but we hesitate on quality players who are cheaper. Carrol is good but not worth £35 mil.
