Man Utd admit further interest in top Arsenal target

The fight continues between Arsenal and a few other clubs for the signature of the Lille attacking midfielder Eden Hazard as Alex Ferguson visits France to see him in action again. Manchester United’s manager has admitted that he went to see the match between Lille and Lyon in order to keep a close eye on the Belgian’s performances.

Arsenal were thought to be the favorites to sign the talented Belgian playmaker, but Chelsea and Manchester United don’t seem too willing to drop the fight and Wenger should expect a fierce battle for the star’s signature.

“I was at the game and watched Hazard, as well as other players.”, Ferguson said. “That’s part of my job, looking at good players.

“Hazard is a very good player and has a lot of qualities. He’s particularly quick over the first 10 yards.”

Arsenal need Hazard just as much as United. The Red Devils are now going to be without Scholes, Anderson never lived to his full potential and after a promising start followed by a bad injury, Cleverly doesn’t seem quite as good as his early promise.

The Gunners however still didn’t recover from the departures of club midfielders Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, and Wilshere’s season-long injury didn’t help Wenger’s case so many Arsenal fans think that a player of Hazard’s ability is urgently needed at the Emirates.

Who think Wenger will be willing to enter a bidding war for Hazard?

    I think we should forget about Hazard and go for Gotze who to me ,is a more dangerous player of the two. What we actually need is a very creative midfielder who can take on defenders and create chances for goals. Gotze fits into that billing and will be less expensive.

    He is a top quality player and we need him. Arsene said he would spend the cash of it was a top quality player who would fit into the team well. 1. Hazard is top quality. 2. His style of play suits us better than all the other teams suggested, listening to all his former team mates and and current international team mates also, they are all pointing towards the gunners. If arsene or whoever is taking care of transfers this summer does not try and get this player or someone who has simular quality then we can all say goodbye to the top accolades next season. An added bonus would be gervinho we could try and do a player plus cash offer. We also need an attacking mid, although his agent is playing down a move I think eriksen is perfect not just for us but the player also, we are the only team that can provide him with simular facilities to Ajax with a very simular style of play and confidence in young players. Another player I would like to see is javi Martinez but if we get both hazard and eriksen I don’t think we will spend another 25 mill plus on a player but he is brilliant, I think he is more of a defender than a midfielder because his strength in the tackle and positioning is first class

    Following Javier Perez’ tweets, it seems as if Wenger has cooled his interest because Hazard is well…an arrogant kid. Apparently, him and his team are too difficult to work with and that his talent that he could bring to the club is not worth the effort. Dont get down though because summer is regardless going to be busy.
