Hazard: Game time key to move

Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea transfer target Eden Hazard says game time - not wages - is his most important consideration.

The Lille winger has been linked with a move to the Premier League, and Manchester City were believed to be favourites once it became clear that the Belgian star was looking for wages in the region of £200,000 a week.

City and United have since made it clear that they are not willing to meet those demands, but both clubs remain keen to secure the two-time French Player of the Year's services.

However, Hazard has insisted that assurances over a first-team place in his preferred position are more important to him than other considerations.

According to the Daily Mail, the £35m-rated Hazard wants a role as an attacking midfield playmaker, and will make his final decision based upon which team plans to play him in his preferred position.

"I have always dreamed of playing the number 10 role, and wearing that number on my back, and you can see what a difference it makes from how many goals I have scored and set up for others," said Hazard.

The 21-year-old Belgian bagged an impressive 20 goals from his central berth this season, having been switched inside from his role on the wing, and Hazard now wants to stay there.

"That will be a consideration when I decide on my club," said Hazard. "Where I will play will influence my thinking on who I should join."

The Lille midfielder insists one of the three Premier League teams will eventually be his new club, but he has no plans to reveal which one until next month at the earliest.

"I can't say exactly when I will decide, because all my focus is on Belgium's next two games," said Hazard. "Once we have played Montenegro and England, perhaps then I can make my mind up."
