The coveted Belgian forward, who is reported to be on the wishlist of top teams all over Europe, is giving little away about his destination when leaving Lille this summer

Lille forward Eden Hazard is coy about his potential Premier League transfer destinations this summer, refusing to specify a preference between title-chasers Manchester City and Manchester United.

The Belgian has been linked with a number of Europe's top clubs, with a departure from the Ligue 1 side at the end of the season confirmed, and has admitted that England is his most likely destination.

The 21-year-old was also spotted attending the crucial Manchester derby on April 30 with its two combatants amongst the favourites to land his signature.

When asked whether he prefers red or blue, Hazard told Canal+: "I like both. They're both nice colours. I think they both suit me."

Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini have been on scouting trips to see the Ligue 1 star and look set for a summer battle for his services, with Goal.com exclusively revealing that City are in pole position to secure the player's services.

Despite the Manchester clubs seemingly favourites to sign the coveted attacker, Tottenham and Chelsea have not given up hope on luring him to London.

However, much will depend on whether either club can attain Champions League football for the coming campaign.
