Hazard welcomes Inter talk

The Belgium international has reportedly attracted interest from

top European clubs, including Inter, Real Madrid, Chelsea and

Arsenal. Hazard was instrumental in Lille winning the French league

and the French Cup last season and was voted Ligue 1’s Player of

the Year by his fellow professionals. “Inter is a fantastic squad,”

Hazard told Corriere dello Sport. “They have great champions. If

you play for a club like Inter you have to be considered a top

player. “Of course the interests of top clubs can only please me.

“When a great club like Inter that has won so much wants me, this

can only make me proud.” The 20-year-old insists, however, that he

will not make a decision regarding his future until the end of the

season. “For the time being I’m not thinking about the future,”

Hazard said. “My focus is on Lille. It’s my agent that takes care

of negotiations.” Hazard is under contract with Lille until June
