Jose Mourinho has said that he would love Manchester United to reunite him with Eden Hazard, although he admits that it is a highly unlikely situation.
However, within months of lifting the title, Hazard’s form dropped, and Jose Mourinho was quickly shown the exit door following a reported split within the Blues dressing room.
Hazard recently admitted he would like to make amends for his part in the Portuguese’s sacking, and would love to play under him once more in the future, and with Manchester United hoping to shackle the mercurial forward when the two teams meet at Stamford Bridge this afternoon, Mourinho has been discussing the possibility of working with his former player once again.
“I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don’t think Chelsea will be selling to Manchester United so it’s not a problem,” he told his pre-match press conference.
“History says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion. It happened with me, it happened with Antonio [Conte].
“Chelsea is top of the league now because he is the kind of player that can make a huge difference.
“Chelsea is led by experience and intelligent people in football. I think they would never sell Eden to Manchester United so it’s not a problem.
“I think he is just a nice kid. We had a good relationship, we were champions together. he was for the first time best player in the Premier League with me, so I think the feelings are good.
“When the feelings are good you say nice things, when they are not good you don’t say so much nice things.”
Hazard has strongly been linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks, a move he has described as a dream.
