One player tends to dominate the Spurs headlines this morning and that is the Lille midfielder Eden Hazard. Some areas of the press have even claimed that terms have been agreed ahead of a summer transfer and while the 21 year old Belgian international has denied this, he has made positive noises towards a potential move at the end of the season.
The Daily Mail online seems to have started with a story claiming that Hazard had told friends that terms had been agreed but a later search for these comments drew a blank. Here’s what the player has to say on the subject,
‘Maybe it will be Tottenham. It is a great English club.
‘I said that I would go to England and there is very good players at Spurs.”
‘I have not yet signed. This is going to happen soon’.
Hazard then qualified his comments by suggesting that a move to La Liga is another option.
‘Spain is perhaps more my style of game but if I move there it must be to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.’
Maybe it’s all lost in translation to an extent and at a fee in the region of £35m, maybe Spurs would be priced out of the market in any event.
