According to reports in The Sun, Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is a £90m target for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, and Blues fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
The Sun says that the former Chelsea boss believes that the 26-year-old is the final piece of his Old Trafford jigsaw, and the Portuguese chief thinks that he can beat the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to the attacker’s signature if he leaves Stamford Bridge.
The report adds that the Belgium international, who has scored eight goals and provided a further seven assists in 23 appearances in all competitions this term, has already rejected a £300,000-a-week deal to extend his stay with the Premier League holders.
Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one described it as “laughable”, another said “United will ruin his career”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

1) If Hazard leaves it’ll be for a team outside the Prem.
2) Hazard and Jose working together again? 😂 I think Eden would rather sign for Strawberry than United.
