Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea the last standing for Eden Hazard
Welcome and good morning to the daily updates about the Belgian prodigy Eden Hazard. The Lille playmaker, who has been dropping tantalizing hints about a move to top notch English Premier League clubs, is thought to have inked a contract with the Champions League winners Chelsea.
No solid evidence has been made public yet but another French source, this time L’Equipe, has announced the signing. Presently, there are three big clubs after Eden Hazard; namely Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Rumor has it that Manchester City is planning to back out from their bid if Eden Hazard snubs their fine-year contract with allows the Belgium international to make £8m-a-year. So far, Eden Hazard seems to be pondering over a decision.
Meanwhile, Manchester City’s archrivals Manchester United are questioning themselves if the club has the capacity to allow Eden Hazard a better contract than Manchester City or Chelsea. For that to happen, Manchester United will have to present an offer better than £155,000-a-week.
The 21-year-old midfielder, Eden Hazard will be making more than £70 million in five years with his new club. The attacking midfielder, Eden Hazard has been slapped with a £30 million bid from Manchester City.
Chelsea is planning to counter the proposal from Manchester City. However, Chelsea’s attempts to bring in Eden Hazard are mostly being orchestrated behind the curtains.
Both Chelsea and Manchester United are dire need of new midfielders. Chelsea needs a new attacking midfielder and a replacement for Frank Lampard. On the other hand, Manchester United will attempt to play Eden Hazard at the old spots of Darren Fletcher, Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes.
Manchester United can present Eden Hazard with a secure future but the number of Belgium players in Chelsea’s squad Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois could tempt Eden Hazard into signing for the London club. Moreover, Chelsea’s Champions League victory is another factor Eden Hazard would consider moving in for Chelsea.
The decision about Eden Hazard’ future will probably take after Euro 2012, following the return of the Belgium international squad.
