Eden Hazard keen on Barcelona move

Eden Hazard is keen on a move to Barcelona and has encouraged the club to make a move for him according to reports in Spain.

The Belgian has enjoyed a fine season to date for the Blues - although it looks like both he and his team-mates will end the season empty-handed after exiting the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid last week.

Hazard appeared to criticise Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho over his defensive approach against their Spanish rivals, insisting that the west London club 'are not made to play football' in reference to their tendency to play on the counter attack in big games.

Mourinho hit back at the former Lille star, claiming he's "not the type of player to sacrifice himself for the team" - which has prompted speculation over his future at Chelsea.

Now according to Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Hazard is keen to leave Stamford Bridge and has indicated to Barcelona that he wants a move to the Nou Camp.

Interestingly, the paper reports that the Chelsea star used an intermediary - Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid - to let Barcelona know he would be keen on a move.

However whether Barcelona are actually interested in Hazard remains unclear - the Catalan club are well stocked in his position and have more pressing concerns in defence and in goal to deal with this summer.

Chelsea are expected to be busy in the summer market after a disappointing season. Reports suggest some big-name players including Hazard and Oscar could be on their way out, while Atletico striker Diego Costa could arrive at Stamford Bridge.
