Manchester City have tabled their offer to lure Eden Hazard to the Etihad Stadium - putting together a deal worth £8million a year.

The Belgian starlet is highly coveted by Europe's top clubs, but has narrowed down his options to United, Manchester City or Chelsea.

The 21-year-old insists that the club that can guarantee him first-team football in his preferred attacking midfield role will get his signature.

However, City hope their offer of £155,000 a week will be enough to secure the Lille star this summer, at the expense of their title rivals.

The Daily Star reports that Hazard, who is valued at £30million, stands to net close to £40million if he signs the five year deal, which would bring the total package put together by City to be worth nearly £70million.

Manchester United will reportedly decide in the next few days whether to match the terms.

Earlier this week, Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra urged Hazard to join the Red Devils if he wants to win trophies, but Chelsea are also thought to be in the hunt to sign him after their Champions League truimph in Munich.

United ended this season empty-handed, as City won their first top-flight league title since 1968.

City also have the ability to financially out-muscle their Premier League rivals, and will hope their offer is enough to secure the signature of one of their top transfer targets, putting them in a strong position to defend their crown next season.

The talented Belgian bagged 20 league goals for Lille last season, and racked up 15 assists from his new attacking midfield position.
