Manchester United appear to have joined the growing list of clubs interested in Eden Hazard, after Sir Alex Ferguson made a personal check on the Lille star over the weekend.

The 21-year-old attacker is one of the most highly-rated young talents currently operating in European football, and seems destined to leave Lille for pastures new at the end of the season.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have all been credited with interest in Hazard, while Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been touted as potential destinations for the Belgium international.

Manchester United have now seemingly emerged as candidates to sign Hazard, after Ferguson's brief visit to France on Saturday evening.

The Old Trafford supremo was spotted by television cameras during Lille's 2-1 defeat to Lyon and, according to Metro, he was there to take a closer look at Hazard.

This reported interest of United in the Belgian provides added spice to what is likely to be one of the most intriguing transfer stories of the summer, with no clear indication as to where Hazard will end up.

Arsene Wenger's apparent decision invest heavily in his Arsenal squad during the transfer window may see the Gunners as serious contenders in the race for Hazard.

Spurs and Chelsea, however, have been frequently linked with the youngster, and White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge would surely be realistic destinations.
