Eden Hazard ‘flattered’ by interest from Paris Saint-Germain


Eden Hazard has committed his long-term future to Chelsea and is adamant he has no interest in leaving Stamford Bridge.

Hazard is already a target for Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid, less than two years after he joined from Lille for £32m.

The Belgium international has starred for Chelsea in recent months, playing a major part in helping them climb to the top of the League.

Manager Jose Mourinho told the Evening Standard last month that the Premier League is the best place for the 23-year-old to become the best player in the world.

Hazard appears to agree and said: “There was never a question of leaving Chelsea. I feel good at this club, and I still have a lot of things to do here.

“I’m flattered to read that PSG are interested in me. But that doesn’t worry me. I am certain of what I have in mind, where I’m going. No-one will change my mind. The objective is to be the best with Chelsea.

“A youngster like me learns on a daily basis by being in contact with seasoned pros like [Frank] Lampard, [John] Terry, [Petr] Cech, [Samuel] Eto’o. They have won so many things. “I try to inspire myself from what they do on a daily basis. It makes me grow. That’s why I think my best years are ahead of me.”

However, while Hazard insisted yesterday that the club are targeting a minimum of one trophy this term, he doesn’t expect the Champions League to be one of them.
