Eden deal Hazard-ous - Fergie
Sir Alex Ferguson believes Chelsea have paid too much for Eden Hazard this summer after forking out a reported £34million.
Hazard became a Blues player last month after deciding to make the move to Stamford Bridge from Lille ahead of joining United or Premier League champions Manchester City. Chelsea have apparently paid just under £35million for the Belgian playmaker and Fergie has questioned whether he is worth that much. "There is a borderline in terms of what you would think is a good signing for United," he said. "I see some values on players, like Hazard for instance. To me it was a lot of money. He's a good player, but £34m? "What we're finding anyway, the climate for buying these top players - not just the transfer fees, the salaries, agents' fees - is just getting ridiculous now." The United chief added: "In the Hazard deal, Chelsea paid the agent £6m. The (Samir) Nasri situation was the same. "It's all about what you think is value for a player. I am not envious of those deals at all. We placed a value on Hazard which was well below what they were talking about. So if it doesn't work, well we're not worried about that."
