Both Chelsea and Man United are in a bidding war for the Lille midfielder Eden Hazard, and there have been rumours that Alex Ferguson has already trumped Chelsea’s £25m bid with a £30m bid of their own.
The Belgian wizard has already made it clear that he is leaving Lille at the end of the season, and his agent has admitted that a move to either Chelsea or Man utd could not fail to interest his client, but first the price would have to be agreed with Lille who are well aware of his value.
A source close to Hazard was quoted as saying recently: “England isn’t exactly a million miles away, so it wouldn’t be any great upheaval.
“It all depends on the project put to Eden and the ambition he senses from whoever he is talking to. Real like him, and he likes them but, as with any player, he would view Manchester United as an great opportunity.
“If Roman Abramovich really is providing funds to take Chelsea back to the top again, then they would be interesting, as well. He would consider that, for sure.”
Now today it is being reported that Chelsea have already come to an agreement on personal terms with Hazards agent, and they now simply have to make sure that they give Lille what they want (i.e. more than Man Utd!) and the dream signing could be theirs.
