Bookies Slash Odds On Hazard Moving To Premier League Rivals
Eden Hazard's next move may well be to a Premier League rival, while Real Madrid remain 1/3 favourites for his signature, Ladbrokes are going 11/2 about the Chelsea forward swapping Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford.
Hazard won the Premier League title and a League Cup trophy under current Man United boss Jose Mourinho during the Portuguese managers second spell at Old Trafford.
And following the Belgian's comments on Man City this week, the bookies aren't ruling out a surprise move to the Premier League leaders at 10/1.
"We are thinking about finishing in the top four, not to be the champions. We know City are not much better than Chelsea, but they are better at the moment," the 27-year-old said.
"In what areas are City better? A lot of things: possession; when they have chances, they score; maybe defensively they are better. They have top players.
"Is it due to their consistency as well, winning game after game? Yes, of course. They are in a good momentum since last year and we need to be back like this."
However, the Manchester sides still trail Italian giants Juventus (4/1) and PSG (5/2) in the betting, although, Hazard last week ruled out a move to the latter due to his past at Lille.
"There has been contact in the past with PSG, but I haven't been tempted," he told Canal Plus.
"If I have to go back to France one day, it would be to Lille. But today, there is no chance that I'll come back in the French league."
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Hazard's recent comments won't have gone down well with Chelsea fans, but he could soon become public enemy number one in West London with a surprise move to United or City potentially on the cards."
