Having secured the title of Ligue 1's Player Of The Year, Lille's young prodigy Eden Hazard will play his final game in France tonight. Next stop, somewhere in England...
The brilliant 21 year old attacking midfielder has scored 17 league goals for Lille this season and is the most prolific assister in France with 15 to his name. Lille will finish the season in third place and the Champions League play offs.
Expand his record out over four full seasons and a bit. We're looking at 146 Ligue 1 appearances, 33 goals and 34 assists. Not bad. Small wonder that the Belgian livewire has been so heavily linked with City and United all season.
In advance of Lille's final game of the season and Hazard's farewell tonight at home to Nancy, the French media are reporting that Champions League winners Chelsea lodged a whammer of a bid for Hazard in advance of their famous victory in Munich last night.
Having finally secured Roman Abramovich's holy grail in the twilight of his Chelsea old guard's careers, the oligarch is about to embark upon a major squad rebuilding operation and Hazard's signature would be the first step in that process.
TF1 reports that Hazard will announce his destination tonight. It could come down to a straight choice between the two jubilant champions City and Chelsea.
