Hazard 'agrees terms' - but not destination

In-demand Lille star Eden Hazard has agreed terms with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, according to his agent, although the Belgian has yet to decide which club he will join this summer.

The 21-year-old is seemingly the most coveted player in Europe at moment, and rarely is a player provided with the chance to hand pick his next destination from a list of the continent's top clubs.

But this is the opportunity that presents itself to Hazard, with Lille having agreed the same fee with all interested parties and the player satisfied with the contract offers to have been made.

Manchester City and Manchester United initially appeared to be the favourites to land Hazard this summer, but Chelsea's victory in the final of the Champions League has given the young forward food for thought.

And, says his agent, Hazard has struck an agreement in principle with each Premier League club, and will reveal his decision in the next ten days.

“We are no longer in the negotiations stage,” John Bico told The Telegraph. “We have reached agreement with all parties. There will be no higher bid.

“Eden has already said he wants it to be fixed before June 2. He will decide after the Red Devils’ (Belgium) games against Montenegro and England, then go on holiday with peace of mind.”
