Benfica’s Gaitan is a name that refuses to go away, whilst a host of players from our Europa League conquerors Athletic Bilbao have also been added to our list of transfer targets, if you believe what some of these papers say.
Whilst there has been little confirmation of our interest in these players, we have received our strongest signal as to who Sir Alex will be looking at this summer.
Speaking to French radio station RMC Sport, Sir Alex has apparently confirmed that he is looking at Lille attacker Eden Hazard. The Belgian has been on the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs for the past few years and with him confirming that he will move on this summer, a not so orderly queue has formed for the 21 year old’s signature.
Speaking following Lille’s game with Lyon, Sir Alex said:
“I came to watch Lille play Lyon and followed Hazard of course, along with other players.
“He is a very good player who has many qualities. He is particularly fast over the first 10 yards.”
