Arsene Wenger: I wanted Hazard

Eden Hazard has been a boatload of fun so far. Yes, it's only been two games, but he's already been involved in more or less everything good Chelsea have done. He has three assists and two penalties won in those two matches, and the only goal Chelsea have scored which didn't see the 21-year-old heavily involved was well offside anyway.

So, yeah, I'm very, very glad we've signed Hazard, steep price or no. The only thing that could possibly make me happier about the deal if Arsene Wenger came out and told us how he really wanted to sign Hazard too but couldn't because Chelsea 'fly a bit higher in the sky'. And I have amusing news in that regard too.

The one player I would like to have signed? Eden Hazard. We would have considered him, yes, because we were on the case a long time but there was such a competition for him. Manchester City and Chelsea, they fly a bit higher in the sky.

We tried to sign him two years ago, we were in touch with Lille but they never wanted to sell him. They had a clause and they decided only this year to sell. He was a very young boy, he is still a very young boy. He is a guy who has something special, as you have seen already.

The only appropriate word I can think of to end this article is 'lol'. Lol.
