    Exactly. He should have signed for City by now.

    With Nasri, Aguero, Silva, Tevez etc etc at City, how is he going to develop?

    We have space for him-Berbatov and Owen are leaving, Park and Giggs are squad players.

    With Ronaldo we were competing and winning Champions League trophies. If Hazard becomes as good as his talent says he can be, then the wages and trophies will be his.

    The difference between Hazard and Ozil/Sanchez/Neuer/Benzema is that those players weren't willing to come to England.

    The difference between Hazard and Sneijder is that he represents value because of his youth and potential sell-on value in the future.

    How much value do City get from paying overmuch for this player? In the past they had to pay extra to get top players to risk their careers at a club with no pedigree of success. And they had to take castoffs or malcontents like Tevez and Robinho.

    Now City have a team full of world class players. They are no longer desperate, and they now have to ask how much spending money will actually improve their team. Now they have Silva, Nasri, and Aguero, so Hazard sits on the bench if he chooses them.

    I actually am more worried about Chelsea than City. It's like when Sanchez went to Barca. What does one more player like that change about facing Barca or City? Not much. But put him on Chelsea, and they get younger and add a dimension to their team they are lacking. I think Hazard realizes how good an opportunity to play week in and week out Chelsea's offer is, and that has given him pause. Just imagine Torres with Hazard creating the assists alongside him.

    I like your post until the chelsea part. The good news is Chelsea are focusing their attention towards Lucas Moura and have already bid 32 million for him. And have acquired the services of Marin, Du Bryne and the already existent Mceachren,Lucas Piazon (who has been the FA youth player of the year I think),Lukakku and Gael Kakuta who is on loan.Next year will be a new revitalized young chelsea side and already possess substantial experience in the likes of Lampard, mata, Torres, Sturride to an extent. So the only team that can really make Hazard a true world beater is United. I'm not that excited anymore about this transfer because I think for some reason it is a done deal. Let's just hope I'm not wrong.

    You don't refer to him as Lucas so that you don't associate his flamboyant tekkers to the mediocre technique of the Liverpool man?

    It depends. If it's actually funny or adds something then it won't be a problem. If it's just one of those daft reaction gifs that add nothing then it will be removed. I think everyone is becoming tired of those rubbish gifs that seems to be infesting the footy forums at the moment. We'd like the forums to be irreverent but not a haven for feckwits.

    The 3 deals being accepted doesn't necessarily mean it's not about money anymore. The 3 offers can be different, but the added money is only one pro, he's got to weigh the cons against the lower money for whoever else.

    I'm gonna assume it's Chelsea at like 180k, City at like 165k and Utd at 150k......but his agent prolly smart enough to know that if he were to reach his potential, the major money from advertising and outside earnings comes from Utd. And that we are the ones most likely to give him his freedom, and a better chance should he struggle. I'm just saying the pros for us, probably pros for Chelsea and City too, but I don't care.

    I can't see us offering anywhere near £150k p/w for him.

    No way we'd offer 150k, and it'd be mental to do so, making him our highest earner after Rooney?

    City reportedly won't go over 110k either, and I doubt we'll go over 100k. Chelsea probably are offering the 180k because they've never given a shit about wages.

    Im just feeding the muppetry really.

    Personally I wont believe he has signed for us until I see him at a press conference beside Ferguson!

    :lol: There'd have to be a lot of us.

    I reckon we've offered around the £80-90k mark. I'd say he deserves no more than Welbeck.

    In the shirt, on the pitch.

    Remember Mikel, even a press conference means nothing.

    We do!

    There is.

    It's quite obvious that Hazard demands a higher salary than Welbeck. He's 21 and a 2 time French footballer of the year.

    Releasing Kalou is probably important to this.

    Personally I won't believe it until I see him wearing a United shirt. While he's playing for us. In a CL Final. In which he scores a hat trick. The last of which he scores with his arse. On which he has a United tattoo. And a small dolphin.

    He was chosen 2 times as the best player in France, and it is one of 3-4 hottest prospects in the world, sure he deserves more.

    I think he's a bit overrated.

    I havent seen him play, but no one other than Messi or Ronaldo deserves the kind of attention this kid is getting.

    Marko Marin could be seen as the direct replacement though.

    Id say im not. He's no more talented than Welbeck and is far from guaranteed to be as big a success as Welbeck. Yeah he's done well in France, but so what. People one here are talking about making him our second highest earning player. They're not living in the real world. Hazard is not the finished article and shouldn't be paid as though he is.

    Can't answer the last part, but at this moment id say Nasri, Silva and Aguero are all better than Hazard.

    Times have changed and whether he's truly more talented than Welbeck or not (I believe he is with a doubt but let's not take that into account) isn't what matters.He's a young foreign player with a big reputation, that alone will surely make him earn more than Welbeck.Whether he'll deserve that bigger wage is another debate but I have no doubt he will be paid more than Welbeck.
    If it's to be paid like Welbeck, he wouldn't have left Lille at all.

    Besides Hazard earned for Lille in his final contract something like 230.000 euros a month.I think it's more than what Welbeck earns

    I see Hazard has been elevated above what he actually is, as you did with Sneijder last summer.

    I'm no expert on him and I'm not going to claim to be, but from what I've seen of Hazard he certainly looks to be a more talented player, and there's certainly a reason why it looks like there are three clubs in for him who will pay a fee that will easily exceed £20m.

    Considering, if the fees talked about are to be believed, he'd be our record signing, I'd imagine he'd be deserving of a wage to match.
