Manchester United are seen as favourites for Lille star Eden Hazard after his recent comments.

Hazard has hinted that he would be more interested in a move to Manchester United than their rivals Manchester City this summer, says the Daily Express.

The 22-year-old can play as both a winger and an attacking midfielder, but the Lille man stressed that the latter was his favoured role.

It would appear that United are best placed to offer Hazard the playing position he craves, as Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Nani already offer Sir Alex Ferguson strength in depth out wide.

David Silva, Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri all appeared in an advanced central role this season for the champions.

"have always dreamed of playing the No 10 role, and wearing that number on my back, and you can see what a difference it makes from how many goals I have scored and set up for others.

"That will be a consideration when I decide on my club. Where I will play will influence my thinking on who I should join," said Hazard.
