City odds-on as Hazard cries blue murder

Hazard's desire to move to the Premier League this summer has been no secret

Manchester City are the odds-on betting favourites to sign Lille midfielder Eden Hazard after the player declared that he would be wearing blue in the Premier League next season.

Hazard’s desire to move to the Premier League this summer has been no secret, leaving Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all chasing the highly-rated Belgian. All five clubs have featured towards the forefront of the betting over the past 12 months but now City have emerged as the 4/9 favourites with Sky Bet to secure the player’s signature this summer.

“I have already said that my wish is to go to the Premier League,” Hazard told Canal+. “It's the blue that I'll be wearing next season. Definitely the blue.”

Despite those comments not ruling out a move to Chelsea, Sky Bet certainly have done so by pricing a move to Stamford Bridge at odds of 20/1. Manchester United remain at odds of 5/1 and Tottenham 6/1 despite the player’s confession.

Hazard, 21, is expected to command a transfer fee in the region of £30 million.
