Eden Hazard has opened the door for a move to Manchester United after admitted it was "a pleasure" to be watched by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Fergie jetted to France on Saturday to watch Hazard play in Lille's defeat at Lyon and the United boss is known to be a big admirer of the Belgian winger.
French champions Lille have slapped a £25million pricetag on Hazard's head and the 21-year-old is also attracting interest from Tottenham.
Hazard was thrilled when he heard that Ferguson had personally come to scout him and says it is a massive honour from the best manager in the world.
When asked if he would be interested in a move to United, he told La Voix du Nord: "Of course, 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."
