Lille midfielder Eden Hazard has said that he is set to take a little more time in deciding his future after the entry of Chelsea into the negotiations. The 21 year old Belgian playmaker is regarded as one of the hottest properties in world football.
His transfer fee could be as much as £ 35 million, while he is thought to demand around £ 170,000 per week in wages. The astronomical wages certainly has put certain doubts regarding his move to either Manchester United or Manchester City. Just at the time when he was contemplating between the two Manchester clubs, Chelsea have entered into the negotiations according to the player.
Chelsea recently won their first Champions League trophy after beating Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties. As a result, they have joined one of the big clubs in Europe and they are now looking to spend even bigger in order to sustain this status. Only a few weeks ago, it looked like they will not be playing in the Champions League next season, but following their title win, they have qualified for the group stages as the defending champions. Eden Hazard has said that the entry of Chelsea has made it difficult for him to choose his next move.
“We are no longer in the negotiations stage. We have reached agreement with all parties. There will be no higher bid. Eden has already said he wants it to be fixed before June 2. He will decide after the Red Devils’ (Belgium) games against Montenegro and England, then go on holiday with peace of mind. Eden is in the reflections stage and a decision will be taken quickly. Those who have come forward have a one-in-three chance,” agent Bico said regarding the future of his client Eden Hazard, who has scored 20 goals in the French league this season.
