Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says his side will not give up on their pursuit of Eden Hazard, despite the attentions of Manchester United.

The Belgian winger conceded last year he was set to leave his club Lille, a revelation that has sparked a frenzy of transfer rumours surrounding his next move.

Hazard admitted earlier in the year he was set to sign for Spurs, before then talking up a potential move to Old Trafford, but Redknapp is prepared to fight.

"[Manchester] United and one or two others are in for him but I think Daniel is ready to compete with them," said Redknapp.

"If you want to be a top-four team you have got to do that. You have got to push on. The chairman is ambitious, we all are.

"I wouldn't want to be saying he is the best player in the world because Man City or Chelsea might then decide they have to have him."

"Hazard is a talented player with great ability. He can do special things. He is on our list. I watched him last year about three times and I have watched him a couple of times this year."

Sir Alex Ferguson was seen watching the 21-year-old in Lille’s defeat to Lyon last weekend.

Despite having Nani, Antonio Valencia, Ji-Sung Park and Ashley Young in their ranks, Hazard would be welcome addition to the United attack.

Spurs likewise, along with Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon, Hazard would dramatically improve their Premier League ambitions, which faded after the New Year.
