The Red Devils boss attended the Ligue 1 club’s 2-1 defeat away at Lyon to check on the progress of the talented Belgian, who has caught the eye of many Premier League sides.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has also made no secret of his desire to bring the 21-year-old to England.
Hazard, who has scored 11 times in 27 appearances so far this season, concedes that he is likely to move onto an English club when the time is right and that the interest shown by United excites him, but insists that he must keep focus on his duties with Lille.
The Belgium international told La Voix du Nord: “Of course [United interest me], this is a club that excites everyone, but for now my focus is on Lille.
“But yes, it is a pleasure to be watched by one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best.”
