Transfer news: Eden Hazard says he is heading for Manchester

Lille playmaker Eden Hazard has confirmed that he will be playing for a Manchester club next season.

The 21-year-old has been linked to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham after a tremendous campaign in France.

Hazard was named as Ligue 1 Player of the year for the second season in a row after topping the assists chart and scoring 17 goals.

That form has meant that Lille can ask for upwards of 30million and it seems like it will be either United or City who will be signing the Belgium international after he revealed where he will be playing next season.

"To Manchester, I've already said," he replied when asked about his likely destination.

"The decision will be taken soon."
