Thanks for the comments.
I pretty much agree with everything you are saying abouy Hazard.
In my article I just meant that 40 million might be too much for Barca.
Either way he would be a terrific signing and he would fit in brilliantly at Barca
I'll admit Pique is a better defender now but he's more experienced. Any talk of Jordi Alba as a better defender is nonsense.
Jordi Alba isn't a good defender never mind better than Smalling. And Smalling has the power and pcae that Pique hasn't, both read the game well. Smalling will be a top top defender.
Thanks for the feedback.
I have disagree with Chris Smalling. He is the best young defender in Europe. He is up there with the lads from Dortmund who are two very good young defenders. Savic off City is another top defender for his age. If you're looking for a defender who will win a Ballon D'Or in years to come, it will be Smalling.
