Costing a Pretty Packet?

Costing a Pretty Packet?

If, as several news sources are reporting, Eden Hazard has decided to come to Old Trafford, then the accountants might want to take a deep intake pf breath before digesting the following.

It`s being reported that to tempt Hazard to Old Trafford, United had to match the wages he`d been offered elsewhere, at both Manchester City and Chelsea, with those wages being a mind-boggling £155,000 a week.

Couple that with the reportedly agreed asking price of £32 million and you start to wonder just how special this twenty-one year-old playmaker is considered to be.

If you believe that Red Boy you're even more stupid than I originally suspected. This is obviously U*d's get-out if they do fail to land him. Slur will come out with his usual bollox of 'no value in the market' and the sheep will take his word as gospel as usual. Sad.

Can only see Chelsea offering him that sort of wages after the season they've had and the current state of their squad their under a lot of pressure to rebuild and challenge again. City aren't in a position anymore whereby they need to pay that sort of ridiculous wage to Hazard and I can see them now being more firm in their transfer dealings to adhere to the FFP rules and cut down their wage bill. Whilst we won't offer that money to a new signing full stop, if he comes here and proves his worth and becomes a key part of the squad like Rooney then he might get those wages but straight from the off he won't. I'd still prefer it if we didn't even feed the lads over-inflated ego and tell him to go feck himself he's not good enough to justify that sort of money and go for Kagawa.

Kagawa is better value for money...

Well, hazard is off to Chelsea it would appear. Can't help but feel that neither of our managers was all that impressed with Hazard's demands - not wages, not playing time, not where he's actually going to play, so off he goes to the sweet talking Abramovitch. He could well go on to become a superstar, and good luck to him - but don't think he's going to exactly do wonders for team spirit in the Chelsea camp, and his wages will almost certainly attract some envious glances from some of Chelsea's more established players. I'm sure the Chelsea fans won't believe us, but I get the feeling that both our clubs have dodged a rather large bullet on this one. You'll have to hope that City aren't interested in kagawa no though! ;)
