Lille’s Eden Hazard, who seems to be attracting interest from all of Europe’s top club, is impressed that Sir Alex Ferguson made the trip to France at the weekend to watch him play against Lyon.

When asked whether he was interested in joining Manchester United, he claimed it was an exciting prospect but for the time being is just focussed on Lille.

“Of course, this is a club that excites everyone, but for now my focus is on Lille,” he said. “But yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best.”
