Jose Mourinho is plotting a simply sensational club record move to sign Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, reported by The Sun in an exclusive.
Apparently, Manchester United’s manager reckons that he can beat both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to the signature of Hazard, in a huge £90million move.
The 26-year-old Belgian has rejected terms on a new £300k-a-week deal at Stamford Bridge, with the Red Devils ready to move for a player who has worked, and won a Premier League title with Mourinho previously.
This would be amazing if United could somehow pull it off. Some signings have an instant impact, just look at what Robin van Persie did when he made the move to the Theatre of Dreams. I’d imagine Hazard would have a similar effect because that’s just how good he is.
However, i just cannot see Antonio Conte selling another player to Manchester United within a twelve-month span. Nemanja Matic has been superb since moving to Old Trafford, with the Chelsea board absolutely kicking themselves at letting him leave. Obviously, they’d want to avoid a repeat scenario, but only on an even greater scale due to Hazard’s profile in the footballing world.
