Hazard Watch: Lille Winger Bound For Manchester

With Chelsea being linked heavily to Brazilian winger Hulk, the chances of us ending up with Lille superstar Eden Hazard were looking fairly small. Now they look even smaller:

Yes, Hazard is still being hilariously obtuse, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that he's going to end up at Manchester City. Because they have lots of money and United are a team that are pretty much made up of wingers. Honestly, if you'd given me the choice of Hulk and Hazard if I wanted to win a match tomorrow, I'd have taken Hulk, but Hazard is much younger and is a brilliant, brilliant player. It's kind of annoying that City will nab him, but I'm pretty excited about seeing him play against better competition regardless.

Oh well. Hulk!
