Eden Hazard: Wanted by a number of Premier League clubs
Eden Hazard admits he is flattered to have been watched by Sir Alex Ferguson at the weekend.
The Manchester United chief made the trip across the Channel at the weekend to watch Lille's game at Lyon.
It is widely believed that the reason for Ferguson's presence at the Stade Gerland was to check on the Lille ace.
And the Belgian winger, who is also being tracked by the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham, admits he was flattered.
When asked if a move to Old Trafford would attract him, Hazard told Lille daily newspaper La Voix du Nord: "Of course.
"This is a club that excites everyone, but for now my focus is on Lille.
"But yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best."
Hazard had previously suggested that a move to Tottenham could be his preferred option in order to guarantee first-team football.
