Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Eden Hazard transfer talk

Manchester United have been linked with Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.

Manchester United have been linked with a surprise move for Belgian star Eden Hazard.

The Daily Star claim the Red Devils could make a £65 million move for Hazard, after realising their pursuit of Real Madrid's Gareth Bale is doomed to failure.

This interest is surely heading the same way too, as it is hard to believe the Blues would sanction a deal to sell the winger to the Red Devils, still considered competitors despite the disappointing performances of both sides this season.

Hazard was last year's player of the year, but has floundered this campaign, failing to score a single Premier League goal.

This has led to question marks over his desire, and whether he harbours ambition of a move away from Stamford Bridge.

A potential move to Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain will be more likely than United, despite the face Chelsea sold them Juan Mata in January 2014.

Perhaps the biggest red flag over a potential deal is the possibility that Jose Mourinho could take over from Louis van Gaal as United boss, after his sacking by Chelsea earlier this season.

Hazard's poor form played a part in this, and if he were appointed then it could make attempts to sign Hazard more difficult rather than easier.
