[20:35:49] Chris Davie: Hazard tells Manchester United, City and Chelsea: I will not accept a bit-part role

The Belgium international says he still hasn't chosen where he will be playing next season but admitted he expects to be a first-choice at whatever club he ends up at
Lille forward Eden Hazard has stated that his move to the Premier League will be based around how much playing time he will be offered.

The 21-year-old confirmed that he has a decision to make between Manchester City, Manchester United or Chelsea.

Hazard told HLN: "My decision will depend on my position and how much playing time I will get.

"It will be Manchester City, Manchester United or Chelsea. Not everyone can say that they have a choice between three top clubs."

His words will encourage Chelsea and Manchester United, who are both looking to rebuild this summer, while Manchester City are looking to add to their current squad and the Belgian would find it harder to hold down a place in the starting XI at Eastlands.

Chelsea are releasing the likes of Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou, while Manchester United have confirmed that both Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen are to leave the club this summer, and both clubs are likely to be able to offer Hazard a regular starting berth.

The playmaker, who has just been handed the number 10 shirt for Belgium's friendly against England on June 2, also hinted that he wanted to play in his preferred position at his potential new club but was unsure of when he would reach the decision.

Hazard added: "I'm happy that I'm playing for the Red Devils [Belgium] in my best position, as a true No.10.

"I do not know when I'll make a decision about my future club."
