Paper Talk: Rivals chase Fred; Man City target £150m Hazard

Date published: Sunday 28th January 2018 9:24

Liverpool have had a bid for a goalkeeper rejected, Michael Keane is up for grabs an Man City will go all out to sign Eden Hazard in the summer, all in Sunday’s papers.



Manchester City are ready to make a £150million summer move for Eden Hazard, reports the Sunday Mirror.

City recently pulled out of a move for Alexis Sanchez dues to his £400,000 a week wages, but according to the tabloid Pep Guardiola has hinted that their stance on wages will change.

And the City boss has “identified the ­Belgium winger as his No.1 summer ­transfer target”.

Hazard, 27, is thought to represent better value for City than Sanchez and they are set to rival Real Madrid to try and sign the Belgium playmaker in the summer.

Hazard will have two years left on his Blues deal in the summer, but so far he has not managed to agree on an extension and City are keen to exploit that at the end of the season.
