Negotiations over the sale of Eden Hazard seem to be continuing, but nobody knows anymore whether Arsenal are still in the fight for the Belgian international or not.
All we can say at the moment is that three teams are battling it out for Hazard, but unfortunately for the Gunners, despite Wenger’s huge interest in him, it seems that those three clubs are City, United and Chelsea, although no-one knows for sure.
Hazard’s agent John Bico stated that it’s only a matter of time until the switch will be made, but didn’t shed any light on to where the player’s destination might be.
“We are no longer in the negotiations stage” Bico said. “We have reached agreement with all parties. There will be no higher bid.
“Eden has already said he wants it to be fixed before June 2. He will decide after the games against Montenegro and England, then go on holiday with peace of mind.”
Hazard himself made this comment about the Champions League entry being necessary, which at least rules out a move to White Hart Lane: “Chelsea makes you hesitate. They’ve won the Champions League and they’ll be in it next season.”
“It’s important for me to play in that competition. Chelsea are a great team with great players. Of course it’s a possibility.
“For now nothing’s been decided but it will be soon. Now I want to join up with the national team and then go on holiday. It’ll do me a lot of good.
Arsene Wenger was following a few attacking midfielders, but Hazard looked to be the best of them. Do you think that Arsenal are still in the race for a possible chance to get the player’s signature?
