Eden Hazard: Wanted by Manchester United

Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen admits Eden Hazard is on Sir Alex Ferguson's wanted list.

Hazard is being chased by a host of clubs across Europe, with the Belgium international expected to leave Lille in the summer.

United, Manchester City and Tottenham have all watched the schemer in action as they weigh up moves for Hazard at the end of the season.

Hazard has previously admitted he was flattered by United's reported interest in his services and now Meulensteen has confirmed the 21-year-old is highly thought of at Old Trafford.

"The manager wanted to see (Eden) Hazard by himself. That's a sign he thinks it's an interesting player. We talked a lot about him," Meulensteen told Voetbal International.

"For a club it's important that you keep refreshing your squad.

"Hazard is a special talent, but it always takes a while. As (an) example, we followed David de Gea for a long time before we got him.

"Ferguson wants to know the character of the player. Because of that he's going to look himself for players. Hazard is 'the man' at Lille. Ferguson wanted to see if that had an influence on him."
