Eden Hazard told to forget Paris Saint-Germain

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been strongly linked with a move away from the club, suffering from poor form this season.

PSG and Real Madrid are two of the European heavyweights who are reportedly interested in the services of the Belgian playmaker.

Hazard recently fuelled the speculation by admitting in an interview with Le Parisien that a move to PSG will be hard to turn down in the future. He also added that he wants to play for a team which can lead him to Champions League glory.

Hazard told the French newspaper:

“It is difficult to say no to PSG, or to any of the team capable of winning the Champions League. PSG are now in that category. And for me, winning the Champions League is my main aim.”

 

The timing of the comments from the 25-year old was considered ill-timed as the Blues played PSG in the first leg of their Champions League tie with the Paris club on Tuesday, losing 2-1.

However, Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has reminded Hazard that he must first prove himself at Stamford Bridge and that he will be better served by playing in one of the better European leagues in the future.

The Dutchman said to Sky Sports:

“Well, he has a contract that he extended but first he must get fit and show he is a top player and then for Chelsea, which is a top club, he can be of huge value.

“In the near future there will be more speculation about who is coming here or who is going, but I don’t go into that.

“For me, I think big, big, big players always like to be in the biggest league, which is the Premier League, La Liga and also the Bundesliga.”

Hazard has failed to score in the league this season, and his only goal came via penalty in the FA Cup tie against MK Dons. He signed a new contract with the Blues last season, and his current deal runs until 2020.
