The Belgian winger had suggested he would reveal the club he was leaving for after playing his final game for Lille
Lille winger Eden Hazard raised temperatures on Twitter last night after failing to reveal which club he would be joining next season.
The Belgian wonderkid signed off in Ligue 1 with a hat-trick as Lille beat Nancy 4-1 before it was expected he would announce which club he would be leaving for.
Hazard, who scored 20 goals and set up 17 this season to help his side secure their qualification for next season’s Champions League play-off, was named best Ligue 1 player for the second year in a row.
He has been courted by a host of Premier League clubs including Manchesters United and City and Champions League champions Chelsea.
Reports at the weekend suggested that Chelsea were prepared to break the bank to land the rising star, offering a five-year contract worth a staggering £100million.
Following the game, the 21-year-old refused to give anything away but admitted Chelsea’s Champions League victory had made him ‘hesitate’ over his final decision.
“As long as I’ve not put pen to paper, I won’t say where I’m going,” the Belgium international told Canal+.
“Chelsea makes you hesitate. They’ve won the Champions League and they’ll be in it next season.
“It’s important for me to play in that competition. Chelsea are a great team with great players. Of course it’s a possibility.
“For now nothing’s been decided but it will be soon. Now I want to join up with the national team and then go on holiday. It’ll do me a lot of good.
“It is possible that Chelsea’s arrival at the negotiation table will delay things, as nothing is done,” he added.
“My agent has met with Manchester and with Chelsea. They both give good offers and are both great clubs. I don’t know. It’s not been finalised yet.”
The talented forward’s stalling caused outrage on the social networking site with many accusing him of being a ‘massive troll’.
Hazard said that he would make a final decision on the future of his career at the start of next month.
Lille managing director Frederic Paquet, meanwhile, believes there are four clubs leading the chase for Hazard but said he did not know where the player would be moving.
“I’m not sure he himself knows exactly where he will go, so for the moment we don’t know,” Parquet told Sky Sports News.
When asked if Chelsea were in the hunt, Parquet added: “I think so. From what I know I think there are maybe four teams interested in him. At this moment we don’t know.”
Parquet also said the French club had not received a concrete offer from any of Hazard’s suitors, adding: “Not yet, because we have a very strong relationship with the player and his advisors, so we will get together and for the moment we are just waiting for him to make a choice between these four teams.”
