Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted he would love to bring Chelsea forward Eden Hazard to Old Trafford.

Chelsea are preparing to host United in the Premier League on Saturday, with the Blues looking to get one over on their former manager at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard, who has an uncertain future in west London, has spoken fondly of working under Mourinho and has said he would like to work under the Portuguese tactician again in the future.

The feeling appears to be mutual, with Mourinho saying he is still a big admirer of the Belgian international.

"We had a good relationship, we were champions together, so I think the feelings are good," Mourinho said.

"History says that when Eden Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion.

"It happened with me, it happened with Antonio [Conte, in 2017]. The season is still in the beginning of course but, if he is the best player of the Premier League until now, which I think he is, Chelsea is top of the league because he's the kind of player who can make a huge difference.

"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United."

Chelsea are 1.75 to win, 3.90 to draw and 5.00 to lose to the Red Devils.
