Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed he would like to sign Eden Hazard, but fears competition from both Manchester City and Manchester United. Redknapp has made a number of trips across the Channel in recent months, with Hazard and Marseille's Loic Remy known to be his two main targets. He has already confirmed his interest in Remy, and now he has underlined his liking for Lille's playmaker Hazard. The Belgian has already spoken about Spurs' interest and has already suggested a move to White Hart Lane was in the pipeline. Hazard also suggested he would be more willing to move to Tottenham, as he would be guaranteed first-team football. Redknapp has now confirmed to the French media how much of a fan of Hazard he is, but warned of the competition for his signature. "Our owner is willing to pay for an exceptional talent, like Eden Hazard," he is quoted by L'Equipe. "I have seen him several times recently in Marseilles [in January] and then also against PSG in the final of the Coupe de France [last May]. "But I also know that Manchester United is looking at him and also Manchester City . "It will be difficult to get him, but I like him a lot." Redknapp also admitted that he was ready to make a personal check on Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud - who has been in impressive form this season. "He looks good, I have read many good reports on him and I have a scout following the French championship," he said. "If a player attracts my attention I will watch him play."
