Eden Hazard might not be the most popular player with the travelling support at Parc des Princes on Tuesday, after the Belgian admitted to be being unsure of his future, and stated that it would be difficult to turn down Paris Saint-Germain.
The 2014-2015 PFA Player of the Year has been anything but the Premier League’s best in 2015-2016, and with Chelsea unlikely to qualify for next season’s Champions League, there has been intense speculation regarding the future of the 25-year-old.
In an interview with French media outlet Le Parisien published on Monday, Hazard admitted to being unsure of his future at Stamford Bridge, claiming that an approach from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain would be difficult for him to turn down.
Unsurprisingly, the comments were not received well by Chelsea FC fans across the globe, who took to Twitter to express their anger at the Belgian. Supporters took exception to the poor timing of the comments in particular, with the Blues set to play PSG in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie on Tuesday.
Here are some of the best tweets from irate Chelsea supporters around the world:
Seriously: Hazard joined Chelsea because of CL win. He wanted to play in it, and win it. Still does. Will surely leave if that’s impossible.

Really, @hazardeden10? ‘It’d be hard to reject PSG move’? You’ve been a liability all season and that’s what you’ve got to say?

Hazard flirting with our CL opponents a day before we play them when his embarrassing form is half the reason we won’t be in it next season.

But if PSG are that desperate to land Hazard, they can have him in return to Verratti, Marquinhos & 40 M

Everything he has done this season is talk about other clubs and how he wants to leave one day,I like him a lot but Chelsea is not Hazard.

I prefer a Lampard over a Hazard. He is mighty talented and a great player. But I love players who give 100% even when not in form.
