Premier League leaders Manchester City have shortlisted Chelsea’s star man Eden Hazard as a potential signing, Spanish source Don Balon reports.
City manager Pep Guardiola wants to revolutionize English football at the club. In order to do this he has interest in signing Hazard along with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The Belgian has been a long-term target for Real Madrid but there have been no concrete reports of offers at this stage.
If Hazard were to leave the club, the Blues would surely be looking at a ridiculously high fee given the state of the current transfer market.
Hazard may leave Chelsea but not for Man City
The only possible destinations I could see the Belgian going to are Real Madrid or Barcelona. Perhaps the willingness to play for two massive clubs that host the world’s best players will entice Hazard in the future.
The 26-year-old is a loyal and humble man and wouldn’t want to leave us for rivals.
I wouldn’t take this rumour too seriously Blues fans.
