Chelsea to outbid Man Utd to land winger – report

Chelsea are ready to outbid Manchester United to land Belgian winger Eden Hazard, The Daily Telegraph report.

The Blues are favourites to sign Hazard from Lille, with United said to be reluctant to pay the £35m asking price. Manchester City, who have also shown an interest, apparently have reservations about his wage demands.

Hazard is expected to announce his future following Belgium’s friendly against England at Wembley next week.

The Sun report Brazilian club Sao Paulo’s claim that Chelsea have made a £23m bid for 19-year-old midfielder Lucas Moura.

The player’s adviser Wagner Ribeiro said: “He has the perfect profile to play in Europe. He’s a good player and knows how to shoot.”

Meanwhile. QPR boss Mark Hughes wants Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong and Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson, according to reports.

Hughes was City’s manager when they signed De Jong, who is entering the final year of his contract at Eastlands.

The Dutchman was only a substitute for his team’s last four matches of the season, which the Daily Mirror say has alerted Rangers to his possible availability.

And the Daily Mail say Rangers and West Ham both want Robinson, who is tipped to leave Blackburn following their relegation.
