The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager stated this while commenting on Hazard's move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.

However, the Wales worldwide has had his fair share of injury problems over the years, and Meulensteen feels that signing the Wales global would be something of a risky move for the Red Devils.

This comes off the back of a Wayne Rooney interview with the BBC when he advised the club to focus on lower profile players and build a new team around them rather than looking for short-term solutions.

Toshack had two spells in charge of Real and gave Bale his global debut as a 16-year-old in 2006 during a six-year stint as Wales boss.

"The price does not bring more pressure, I've not really thought about that".

Hazard's presentation on Thursday has been scheduled for 7pm local time in a bid to make it more accessible for fans to attend.

Investigators recovered the gunman's firearm buried in the home of one of the suspects in the province of Mao, police said. Witnesses say the crime was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars.

Eden Hazard has signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid, and London's Chelsea received 100,000,000 Euro for his transfer.

But despite its shopping spree, Real remains determined to add another player to its deepening roster as it seeks a swift return to championship status in soccer's top tournaments. "I've never seen or found a player like him", said Calderon. "He can play in many positions - attacking midfielder, winger, even a false nine - so it is a fantastic opportunity".

Do you think any of these players will improve United?

"Knowing he is an important player who is young, and knowing that Zidane is continually asking for him, they can wait in the office for a lot of money in a suitcase. I don't know if he wants to leave".

There's also the return of the Transfer Talk Podcast, the daily UK, Regional and European Paper Talk, plus features acrossskysports.com and the Sky Sports app.
