Chelsea FC midfielder Eden Hazard has dismissed reports linking him with a move to PSG and has stated his desire to stay with the club.
Eden Hazard had a relatively slow start this season, but the Belgium international is currently among the most in form players in Europe at the moment. Hazard has already scored nine goals in the league and has provided 5 assists so far. Jose Mourinho is seemingly getting the best out of the 23-year-old and he seems to be determined to take his game to the next level. The fact that he has been Chelsea’s top scorer so far is an indication on how dependent they are on his performances currently.
Recent reports have indicated that French giants PSG are looking to sign the Belgium international and are preparing a big bid for the winger. But Hazard, whose current contract at Stamford Bridge runs till 2017, has stated that he wants to extend his stay at the club despite PSG’s interest as he sees Chelsea as the best place where he can improve and develop as a footballer.
“For four years, during each transfer market, there are rumours I will go here and there.
“Paris has money, Paris is a great club. But I am at Chelsea, there is no chance to see me leaving during that transfer market or during the next one, I think.
“I don’t want to leave. To me, Chelsea is the best place to improve.” – The Chelsea winger told the press.
This comes days after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho also claimed that the London club won’t sell Hazard, who he believes “his value in the market is a crazy value”. Of course very few clubs can afford his transfer fee and wages and PSG is certainly one of them. It will be interesting to see if the French club does submit an official bid for Hazard in this window or in the summer.
