Lille warn Chelsea over Hazard

Chelsea are notorious for tapping players up, having been found guilty of illegally approaching Ashley Cole whilst he was at Arsenal and convincing him to seek a move away from the club, whilst luring Gael Kakuta from France at a young age.

Lille’s vice general director Frederic Pacquet told L’Equipe: “If Chelsea directly contacted Eden, we would take offence at it. That is not the right custom.”
