Manchester United are ready to shell out £90m on signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea next year, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Jose Mourinho has identified Hazard as the “missing piece” in his jigsaw at Old Trafford as he looks to complete his overhaul of his squad.

Hazard’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months amid suggestions that Real Madrid could be set to firm up their long-term interest in the 26-year-old playmaker in the summer.

The same report claims that Hazard has already turned down the offer of a new four-year contract at Chelsea worth as much as £300,000 a week.

Now it is being claimed that Mourinho wants to link up with Hazard again, this time at Manchester United, after their spell at Chelsea together during the Portugese coach’s second stint at the club.

The same report says that Mourinho is ready to “raid” his former club for Hazard, despite reports of the pair having a strained relationship during the manager’s final few months at Stamford Bridge.

In the meantime, Hazard will be expecting to start for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Leicester City.
