Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho would love to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea but doubts they would sell him to them. In an interview last weekend with a Belgian newspaper, Hazard named Mourinho as the one managers he would like to work with again.
Mourinho welcomed the sentiment – but is not about to get his hopes up.
“I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don’t think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United,” He said.
“He’s a nice kid, we had a good relationship, we were champions together. He was for the first time the best player of the Premier League with me, so I think the feelings are good.”
Hazard’s form is bad news for Chelsea’s Premier League title challengers, according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
The Belgian has once again been the star player in the league over the first two months of the season, and United head to Stamford Bridge with their opponents locked together with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.
Mourinho said: “The results speak by themselves. Obviously they are not playing Champions League, and that puts (their focus) just on the Premier League.
“Very good results, top of the league and of course lots of good players but history says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion.”
