In 2012 there were some big transfers in the Premier League.

Robin van Persie completed a £24 million move from Arsenal to rivals Manchester United, and Eden Hazard, who was also being chased by both Manchester clubs, made a move to Chelsea for £32 million.

Sky Sports decided to start a debate among Chelsea and Manchester United fans after asking fans of the two clubs, which of the two stars was the better signing back in 2012.


The debate has raged on Twitter, with Chelsea and Manchester United fans both arguing their cases. However, Chelsea fans seem determined to label Hazard as the better signing.
