The exciting Belgian talent has been one of football’s most sought after commodities for a while, winning the Ligue 1 young player of the year twice in a row in 2009 and 2010 before leading Lille to the title in 2011, being named Ligue 1 player of the year in the process.
A number of managers have made no secret of their admiration for the midfielder, and it is reported that Sir Alex made the trip to France at the weekend to cast an eye over him as they lost 2-1 to Lyon. Last month he was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham but it appears he has greater aspirations, namely working under football’s greatest ever manager.
Speaking to La Voix du Nord, Hazard said about Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson:
“Of course, this a club that excites anyone.
“For now my focus is on Lille but yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best.”
