Eden Hazard has been a subject of a lot of speculation over the last couple of seasons now. The Chelsea superstar, who is regarded as one of the greatest players to play in the Premier League in recent time, is linked with a move out of Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to reports, Manchester City have been linked with a shock move for the Belgian superstar.
The recently crown Premier League champions have done very well since Pep Guardiola’s arrival, who is eager to continue Man City’s dominance in the English top flight. The Catalan mastermind is reportedly keen on signing an attacker, who can further strengthen his side’s offensive department.
And after failing to rope in Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez in the winter transfer window earlier this year, the Sky Blues will be desperate to acquire the services of a top-notch attacker. Eden Hazard, in that regard, could be an ideal option for the Manchester giants, who already boast a super-impressive roster.
Since arriving from Ligue 1 in the summer of 12, Eden Hazard has done an excellent job in the English top flight, having featured in over 208 games in the Premier League, in which he has scored 69 goals whilst providing 48 assists. However, with his current contract expiring in 2020, Hazard’s long-term future with Chelsea could be in serious jeopardy.
Therefore, Manchester City could definitely make a strong case to sign this highly rated attacker, as they attempt to solidify their attack department for next season. The 27-year-old can not only strengthen Man City’s overall quality but will also make a terrifying partnership with the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane, which is capable of breaching any defence in the world.
Furthermore, Pep Guardiola is also said to be a huge fan of Eden Hazard, largely due to his style of play. His ability to wriggle through the opposition defence with his dribbling ability will hand them an advantage in the attacking third.
In addition, the Belgian superstar will also prove to be a great answer to Manchester United’s acquisition of Alexis Sanchez in the winter transfer window, as the two Manchester giants battle it out for the Premier League title next season.
