Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed how close he came to signing Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
Hazard who joined Chelsea in 2012, has been a revelation since then, and Redknapp has revealed that he even went to the extent of meeting Hazard in the hotel room.
“I went to France and met him in a hotel room,” Redknapp told BT Sport.
“I was with him for three hours….that’s probably why he didn’t sign!
“I could have had him at Tottenham. We wanted him but the club didn’t get the deal done.”
