Pep Guardiola approaches Chelsea ace’s entourage and targets move

Pep Guardiola is keen to land one more top quality forward at the Etihad.

Manchester City beat Brighton 2-0 on the south coast in their Premier League opener on Saturday.

But even with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus leading his frontline, Guardiola is not satisfied.

Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe have both been targeted but to no avail.

As a result, one potential option that has emerged as a topic of discussion at the Manchester club is Hazard.

According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Guardiola himself has already spoken to the Chelsea man’s entourage.

Having made the approach, the City boss apparently believes signing Hazard would be a huge statement in the Premier League.

Guardiola has informed City’s hierarchy he would like to target a move for Hazard, who is currently recovering from injury.

Don Balon add it is now up to City to fulfil their orders to snatch the Belgium international from the champions.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been linked with Hazard this summer.

But Manchester City could swoop as the club continue to back Guardiola in the transfer market.

The Manchester club have already added the likes of Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy to their ranks.


  1. Its a total rubbish even if am going to sell my best player should it be to a next door rival,i will be stunned if chelsea try that.

  2. There is no smoke without fire what is in the social media is what they are planning Man u have done it by snatching Matic just by joke and now City is coming with their big money for Hazard and if Chelsea again sell Hazard to another Manchester team then it means Chelsea will be relegated to championship come next season. why other premier league teams can not sell to you but you continue supporting your rival that mean /give scenes the hierarchy should come to themselves and protect the blues

    • My brother@Morgan, there are exceptional cases:this is one of it. Secondly, PEP is no longer in the La Liga nor Bundesliga where he bought all the quality of other teams thereby rendering them powerless in order to be on top. This is EPL and Chelsea FC to be precise,Pep and Man City has nothing to entice Chelsea into selling Hazard or any player.The case of Matic is also an exception;Matic was scared of playing a role from the bench and was honoured by Roman to let him go to Man U just as he did to Petr Cech.Thanks man.
