Eden Hazard has told Sky Sports he can't wait to come up against Manchester United next season

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has told Sky Sports News HQ that he cannot wait to play Manchester United because of their new boss.

United confirmed the arrival of Jose Mourinho on Friday with the former Chelsea manager agreeing a three-year contract.

There were some newspaper reports on Thursday suggesting Hazard wanted a Stamford Bridge exit and had spoken with his old boss to discuss a potential move to Old Trafford.

But speaking from Belgium's training camp ahead of the pre-Euro 2016 friendly against Switzerland at the weekend, the 25-year-old suggested a transfer was not on his agenda.

He told SSNHQ's Gary Cotterill: "Mourinho is a fantastic manager. I wish him good luck for the next season.

"I can't wait and just want to play against Manchester United. He's a good manager with a lot of experience. He's at a big club now and he will just want to win games."

"He said good luck at the Euros and we will see after the Championships."

The Belgian midfielder who signed for Chelsea four years ago from Lille for £32m had a disappointing season by his standards.

But having shown glimpses of his old form in the latter stages of the Premier League campaign, he is keen to exhibit his skills on the European stage in France this summer.

Asked if he was back to his best, he added: "I hope so. I want to be one of the best players at Euro 2016 and I hope we can get to the semi-finals or the final with the team. We have a lot of quality."
