Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj has named Eden Hazard and Branislav Ivanovic as two of the players he admires most, according to insidefutbol.com.

The Belgium international, who did not play in his country’s 5-0 win over Cyrprus last night, named his compatriot Hazard as the finest passer of the ball he has played against.

“I’d say Eden Hazard.” Januzaj responded when the question was put to him. On who is the fittest all round player he has played against, it was Chelsea’s consistent and goal scoring right-back Ivanovic that got the nod.  Ivanovic is adored by all Chelsea fans for his sometimes uncompromising style of play as well as his uncanny ability to score vital goals- he has recently netted winners in the League Cup semi-final against Liverpool and in the Premiership game away at Aston Villa, a crucial victory in Chelsea’s attempt to win the league title back.

Hazard signed for the club in 2012 for over £30 million, turning down Manchester’s United and City to ply his trade at Stamford Bridge. His three years since have recently earned him a new five-year contract which brings him in line with the clubs highest earners.

When asked who is the toughest defender he has faced, Januzaj had a surprising answer:

“Cambridge’s defenders were quite tough.”

Branislav Ivanovic is said to have become the top target for Bayern Munich this summer, according to the Metro.

The Serbian has played a key role in the Blues season so far, having played every minute of their 29 Premier League matches.

 

The defender is now set to have his loyalty tested, having played for the West-London club for just over seven years, with the offer of joining the German giants this summer, who are looking for another right-back to eventually replace Rafinha for the starting XI at the Allianz Arena – Lahm, a legend, is not a certainty anymore with his 32 years.

Ivanovic’s contract expires at the end of next season…
