Lille playmaker Eden Hazard has thrown the transfer door open to Manchester United after admitting the English champions were of interest.

The Belgian sensation has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona both thought to be keen on luring the player to La Liga.

With 11 goals in 27 Ligue 1 appearances, the 21-year-old has further added to his reputation this season, and is now enticing the Red Devils into a possible move for his services after Sir Alex Ferguson was spotted watching the player in Les Dogues’ recent 2-1 defeat to Lyon.

“Of course [United interest me]. This is a club that excites everyone, but for now my focus is on Lille," Hazard told La Voix du Nord.

“But yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best.”

Tottenham Hotspur had previously been regarded as the favourite from England to sign the player, whilst Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is also keen.

And Harry Redknapp is under no illusions over the huge battle ahead if he wants to bring the player to White Hart Lane, but has the finances in place to fund a big-money move to the capital.

"Our owner is ready to pay for an exceptional talent like Eden Hazard," Redknapp told French press.

"But I know Manchester United are also following him very closely. Manchester City too, so it will be difficult to sign him."
