Eden Hazard recently narrowed his list of possible summer destinations. In an interview with Canal+, Hazard shared a little information about where he sees himself in the future:
I have [played in] over 100 Ligue 1 matches, I'm young but I want to know anything else. Paris is tempting with the players there now but I prefer to go abroad.
I think I'm heading to England, the style of play suits me there and I think it's in this league that I can learn as much. We know the great English clubs. It will be a club where I'm sure to play with a play style that suits me.
While it's good to be able to put speculation about a possible move to Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan or Inter Milan for Hazard to rest, Hazard's narrowing of his options down to England still leaves six clubs fighting for his signature in the summer.
Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been linked in various reports with Ligue 1's 2010-11 Player of the Season, and will all be buoyed by the news that Hazard has included them on his shortlist of clubs to transfer to from Lille.
We'll save the rankings on where he'll actually move for later. Who knows? In a month or two, he could turn around and decide that Barcelona, Inter Milan or Paris Saint-Germain is the team for him.
But for now, let's see where Eden Hazard would fit in in the primary formations of the top six clubs of the English Premier League for the 2012-13 season.
