Arsene Wenger:Chelsea stole EdenHazard from my house





Arsene Wenger has revealed how
close Arsenal came to signing Eden
Hazard before Chelsea swooped
in with their big-money offer.
Hazard made his £32million switch
to the Blues in 2012 after excelling
at Lille, but Wenger say it was the
Gunners who were in the driving
seat for the Belgian’s signature until
Chelsea threw their cheque book on
the table.
Wenger told BeIN Sports: ‘Yes, I
wanted to take him, I had his agent
at my home but again the barrier
was financial and Chelsea made an
effort that I couldn’t make.
‘He can be one of the players who
grows into the Messi, Ronaldo
stature if he continues to develop
well.’
Wenger is out of contract at the
Emirates at the end of the season,
and although he insists he’s
committed to Arsenal, he admits a
move to the Bundesliga would be a
potential lure in the future.
He added: ‘If I was to go somewhere
then I think it would be in a
different country because I am so
much Arsenal that I would not like
to coach anywhere else in England.
‘Germany (is an option) because I
am of German culture a little bit
and it’s a country where I have
never worked and I am very close to
it.’
