I know that Arsenal fans (and Arsene Wenger) have always wanted the young Belgian international Eden Hazard to come to the Gunners, but I personally am sick of his never-ending pronouncements on where he would like to go when he moves this summer.
A couple of years ago the Lille midfielder seemed quite pleased to be linked to Arsenal, but nowadays he seems to whoring himself to every big team in Europe. I remember about a month ago that he said he wouldn’t go anywhere except Real Madrid.
But his latest interview has him quoted as saying: “Maybe I’ll go to Tottenham. It’s a great English club.” Well seriously Eden if you think they are a “great” club then you are welcome to them.
It has also been reported that Lille want €40million euros for him (about £35m), which will obviously rule Arsene Wenger out of the bidding (and there is NO WAY that Arsenal or the Spuds would be able to compete with the wages he could get from the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid or Man City).
So I think it is time to forget about Hazard and simply accept he will never be coming to Arsenal, although I must admit I would absolutely hate him to go to Tottenham!
