Barcelona and United prepared for bidding war over €85m Chelsea star Eden Hazard

Chelsea will face a battle to hold on to Eden Hazard, with French publication BuzzSport claiming that Manchester United and Barcelona want to sign the €85m midfield star.
It seems Barcelona view Hazard as an ideal addition to their squad and could test Chelsea's resolve with a 'stunning summer offer'.
And The Daily Star, via BuzzSport, understands United are also very interested and would be willing to spend a mammoth £65 million to secure his services.
The 24-year-old Belgian only signed a new long-term deal with Chelsea in February worth an estimated £200,000 per-week.
Marouane Fellaini's agent is set to meet with AC Milan to discuss a potential move away from OId Trafford.
Fellaini has struggled at United this season, and has started just 11 games in all competitions. And Italian news outlet Calciomercato is reporting that his agent, Luciano D'Onofrio, will meet Milan's joint-CEO Adriano Galliani this week to explore a move to the San Siro.
Milan are said to prefer a loan move for Fellaini but United would rather sell the player, who they value at around £20m.
United officials have been watching Sanches closely in the last few weeks as he enjoys a breakthrough campaign with Benfica.
Sanches, an all-action central midfielder, has a buy-clause set at £58.8m, but United would expect to get him much cheaper.
