Eden Hazard has revealed that Jose Mourinho attempted to sign him when he was at Lille.

The Belgian winger joined Chelsea from the French club last summer but was a target for new Blues boss Mourinho when he was at Real Madrid.

"He told me he'd asked Lille, but I wanted to stay there until I was 21 and develop my game," said Hazard.

"I must have been 19 or 20 at the time. Real Madrid is a wonderful team, but I had so much still to prove in the French league. I stayed because I didn't want to leave too early."
