Man United made shock favourites to sign Chelsea superstar – report

Manchester United have been installed as the favourites to sign Eden Hazard this summer with Ladbrokes

Manchester United have been installed as the favourites to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea this summer, according to reports.

The Belgium playmaker’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months following his stuttering form for Chelsea last season.

Hazard had been touted as a possible transfer target for both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain during the season but the 25-year-old moved to play down the chances of a move away from Stamford Bridge recently by insisting that he is happy to stay at Chelsea.

However, bookmakers Ladbrokes have been forced to slash the odds on Hazard making a shock transfer to join former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after a flurry of bets backing the move, according to Metro.

Manchester United are currently priced as the 8/1 favourites to sign Hazard, ahead of PSG at 10/1 and Real Madrid at 10/1.
