With the Manchester club eager for a high-profile arrival in the summer, they have joined the race to sign the Belgium international from their Premier League rivals
Manchester City will rival Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid for the £80 million signature of Chelsea star Eden Hazard should he leave Stamford Bridge this summer, say The Sun.
The 25-year-old is reportedly seeking a move away from the reigning Premier League champions at the end of the season, with City keen to take advantage should he depart.
City are eager for a big-name arrival this summer, with Barcelona star Lionel Messi remaining their ideal signing, but are now ready to battle for the Belgium international.
They hope international team-mates Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne will play a key role in trying to persuade the playmaker to the Etihad Stadium.
