Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed he would likely be playing for Tottenham had they qualified for this season's Champions League.

The 21-year-old Belgium forward moved to Stamford Bridge from Lille this summer, but could have ended up in north rather than west London.

"It's true that Tottenham tempted me because it was a young team which was third in the league," Hazard said in a France Football article quoted in the Daily Mail. "Unfortunately, the end of the season did not go well. They did not reach the Champions League, which tipped the balance."
