Chelsea striker Eden Hazard 'tempted' by Tottenham Hotspur offer before Champions League failure

25 September 2012 07:13
The 21-year-old Belgium forward moved to Stamford Bridge from Lille this summer, but could have ended up in north rather than west London. "It's true that Tottenham tempted me because it was a young team which was third in the league," Hazard said. "Unfortunately, the end of the season did not go well. They did not reach the Champions League, which tipped the balance." Chelsea won the Champions League last season, which ultimately cost Spurs their place, but Hazard did not enjoy the manner in which they did it. "Nobody was really a fan of Chelsea's game last season," he said.
