Hazard could have been a white!
Harry Redknapp, the former Tottenham Hotspur manager, has claimed that Eden Hazard wanted to join Spurs before completing a move to Chelsea. He said: “I went over to Lille four times, but the first time I saw enough, I knew. I kept turning up trying to actually meet with him. I watched to have a chat with him. Eventually I met with him in a hotel and spent an hour or so chatting with him. I was over there all the time.”
Hazard, one of the brightest upcoming stars in world football when he was in France, was courted by many of the heavyweights in world football before eventually deciding to join the Blues, and has surely become one of the club’s finest players ever. He is also one of Chelsea’s most decorated ones, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during his time in north London.
