Europe’s hottest prospect, Eden Hazard, delivered a teasing message to the world today by claiming he has made a decision on his future. The Lille winger is being pursued by several of Europe’s top clubs and recently narrowed down his options to England, telling Belgium news websites HLN: “It will anyway be Manchester City, Manchester United or Chelsea.” This left a huge question mark over which English money-machine will land the Frenchman’s services, however an announcement today on Hazard’s Twitter page suggested his future will be revealed soon.
“Good afternoon guys. i made up my mind. see you later. thanks”, was the message published for all of his Twitter followers to see.
Reports from the English media, including the Telegraph, are inclining towards Chelsea being the favourites. Recent rejuvenation, Champions League triumph, and first team opportunties make Chelsea an attractive proposition for Hazard, 21, who has made clear his decision will be based on the position he would play and the amount of time he would get on the field.
