Transfer news: Eden Hazard syas he will be playing in blue next season
Lille midfielder Eden Hazard has admitted he is likely to be playing for Manchester City next season.
The Belgian is being chased by a number of English clubs after the player admitted he would like to move to the Premier League at the end of the season.
Harry Redknapp, Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini have all publically praised Hazard who is available for around £30million.
The 21-year-old has the most assists in Ligue 1 with 14, while the playmaker has also scored 17 goals.
Hazard was spotted at the recent Manchester derby and when asked whether he prefers red or blue by Canal+, he said: “I like both. They’re both nice colours. I think they both suit me.”
But when pressed further, Hazard added: “The blue, it’s the blue that I’ll be wearing next season. Definitely the blue.”
