Manchester City are set to launch a move for Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard, according to reports.
City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed during the week that the Citizen’s would only look to bring in ‘one or two’ footballers during the summer window and said the side were not in a right position to splash around ‘another £300m’ on new players.
A wide man who can also play through the middle is thought to be a priority for the Manchester City boss, who committed his playing future to the side this week by signing a fresh contract.
Eden Hazard, who has won the English Premier League on two occasions at Stamford Bridge, fits the bill perfectly well and has claimed he could leave if Chelsea do not make the right recruitments in the summer window.
The Belgium international playmaker is thought to have a strained relationship with Italian tactician Antonio Conte and could look to leave even if the former Italy boss departs as widely expected.
La Liga side Real Madrid have been long-term fans of Eden Hazard but The Sun states Manchester City will rival the Los Blancos for his signature this summer transfer window.
It is suggested the new English Premier League champions would not mind to table a £100m-plus offer if given a sign that a transfer deal could be possible.
The Etihad side would also have no problem giving the Belgian, a player Pep Guardiola was allegedly first attracted to at German Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, a massive pay rise.
