Manchester United surely won't sign Chelsea winger Eden Hazard this summer, will they?
Well, according to The Manchester Evening News, The Red Devils are on alert for the Belgian winger after he criticised his club following their Champions League semi-final defeat to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid last night.
So, is there any chance that the Red Devils will land the superstar this summer? Well, they certainly have the cash at their disposal and many tipped them to sign the forward in the summer of 2012, before he opted for Stamford Bridge.
And, perhaps Hazard would be tempted to join up with former teammate Juan Mata as Manchester United enter yet another new era. However, in truth, a move appears unlikely - and Hazard would be mad to consider a move to The Theatre of Dreams.
Don't get me wrong here, Manchester United - under a new boss - could become a force in England once again next season. In fact, United probably need someone with the pace and power of Eden Hazard. After all, the likes of Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young and Nani have all been in and out of the team all season and are far too inconsistent.
But Hazard has it all at Chelsea. Well, he may not enjoy their style of play, but he has the opportunity to become the main man under 'The Special One' for many years to come.
The Portuguese tactician may well be a defensive master, but he's no stranger to improving individual players. The likes of Didier Drogba and Mesut Ozil have enjoyed success under his guidance and Hazard will only improve his game working with the Blues boss.
Additionally, he may not like Mourinho's tactics, but they will ultimately prove successful in the long term. It may not happen this season for Chelsea - they may fail to win a trophy - but in the coming years, the Blues will be challenging on all fronts.
And it will be Hazard - along with Mourinho - who will be leading them.
Chelsea will be even better next season - and their attacking play will improve, too. With Hazard combining with Willian, Oscar and Co. he can continue to light up the Premier League.
The addition of a world class striker in the Blues ranks will help both Hazard and the club. The Belgian set up the opener for Fernando Torres yesterday evening and he may finally have a superstar to link up with on a permanent basis in the next campaign.
For the benefit of personal and club success, Hazard should remain a Chelsea player for many years to come. Manchester United may need him, but he doesn't need them.
