The Belgium international has lit up Ligue 1 with impressive individual displays over the last number of seasons, and was a key player in bringing the top-flight title to the Lille Metropole last term.
With Real Madrid and Inter apparently interested in him, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham have also been linked with a summer bid for the attacking midfielder.
Spurs in particular interested the player, with his father also suggesting that a move to White Hart Lane would be good for his development. (Daily Mail)
Hazard has previously stated that he would prefer a move to a Premier League club, and the latest rumours in France and England are that Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to bring him to Old Trafford; something the player would welcome.
“Of course [United interest me], this is a club that excites everyone, but for now my focus is on Lille,” he told La Voix du Nord, translated to English by The Daily Mail.
“But yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best,” he admitted.
A bidding war over the playmaker is expected come June, with Hazard already admitting that this will be his last season with the French champions.
