Chelsea star Eden Hazard was once underrated and undervalued by former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson but the present has proved the legendary manager wrong.

Hazard was once a subject of interest from United before he was finally captured by Chelsea.

Chelsea had won the race but had to cough out £34 million for the player and Ferguson had felt that the player did not deserve such an amount on him.

After losing on Hazard, Ferguson went ahead to sign Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £17 million but present reality can speak for itself.

Recalling Ferguson’s words, he stated that he was not worried and will not regret missing out of the player because they had placed a value on Hazard which was far below what Chelsea took him for.

It is now evident that the Belgium star has proved the former United boss wrong having scored 96 times in 308 games for the Blues, winning two Premier League titles.

On the other hand, Kagawa scored on 6 times for United in 57 games and struggled to make an impact.

The Belgium star player has been hailed for lifting the Chelsea team with his great form and is tipped as one of the best players in the world.
