"I had a chance to sign for Manchester United, Man City, Tottenham, but I made the right decision," he told the Guardian.

"I spoke with the owner and I had Didier Drogba and Joe Cole on the phone telling me this was the best club," he added.

Despite being linked with a move away this summer, Hazard ruled out any possible chance of playing for either of the Manchester clubs.

He has lifted two Premier League titles in his five-trophy haul for the Blues.
