Watch: Harry Redknapp reveals that he nearly signed Chelsea star


Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has revealed that he came close to signing Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Joe Cole, who played under Redknapp at West Ham United was currently playing his football for French outfit Lille, where Hazard was coming through the ranks and was impressing for the first team and recommended to Redknapp that he should take a closer look at the young star.

Redknapp flew out to France to meet with the Belgian and revealed that Hazard was keen to make the move to Tottenham. However, in true Spurs style, the deal never happened and he made the move to Stamford Bridge and has gone on to become one of the best players in the world and ironically scored their second goal against us last night.
