Hazard heading for Manchester

Published Add your comment

Lille ace Eden Hazard has confirmed that he will be playing in Manchester next season, but refused to reveal whether it will be at the Etihad Stadium or Old Trafford.

Sky Sports reports how the 21-year-old winger is one of the most sought after players in all of Europe, and is expected to arrive in the Premier League this summer.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has been heavily linked with a move for Hazard, as he looks to continue strengthening his squad in a bid to retain the domestic title next season, but he will face stiff competition from local rivals Manchester United, who are also keen to sign the playmaker.

After being named Ligue 1 Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, Hazard has made no secret of his desire to end his six-year stay in France and test himself in England.

The likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the Belgian international in the past, but after the player's most recent comments they all appear to have missed out on his signature.

"To Manchester, I've already said," Hazard replied when asked about his likely destination at the end of the current season when speaking at the Ligue 1 awards gala. "The decision will be taken soon."
