Mancini: Hazard perfect fit for City
Roberto Mancini believes Manchester City would be the "perfect" club for Belgian starlet Eden Hazard to join.
The 21-year-old is one of the hottest properties in Europe and would appear to have his pick of clubs with the likes of Tottenham, Real Madrid and Barcelona also linked with a move for the player.
And Mancini admits he has a long-standing interest in the Belgium international.
"I like Hazard a lot," the Italian told France Football. "He's a good player, he's young and he would do great things in our team.
"Given his technical qualities, City would be the perfect destination for him. I know him and have been following him for a long time. He's a player a lot of teams want."
Mancini went to see Hazard when Lille faced Valenciennes last month and he is not the only manager in Manchester to have been on a scouting assignment to see the young talent.
Ferguson told French radio station RMC Sport: "I came to watch Lille play Lyon and followed Hazard of course, along with other players.
"He is a very good player who has many qualities. He is particularly fast over the first 10 yards."
