Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread
Hazard's stats have been very good this year, but over the past 2 years (at Lille) Gervinho has had better stats. Hazard is clearly the better player, so they don't tell all. The most impressive thing if you're talking stats is that this Lille side isn't as good as the one last year, they lost several key players, so for Hazard to improve so much and still produce stats like this is exceptional.
Those rumours about Chelsea are mainly unfounded. Originated from a Lille English account with 200 followers, nothing to do with Lille as a club. The news was then spread by various Goal.com journalists, hardly reputable. He could well end up at Chelsea, but no-one knows outside of his circle. I'd still go with United (mainly because City genuinely don't seem as interested as first thougt)
