Hazard keeps the door open to Lille return

Midfielder has impressed for the title-favourites this season

Chelsea’s attacking-midfielder, Eden Hazard, has revealed that he could depart the West Londoners in the near future. 

The 23-year-old, who has been Chelsea’s catalyst for their Premier league title charge, was linked with a move away in the January window, with French champions Paris Saint Germain known admirers of the Belgium international.

However, Hazard, who has been nominated for the PFA Player of the year, turned down a move to the Parisian-outfit, and subsequently, he penned a new contract at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea tying him down to a new long-term deal.

The player joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012, from Lille, and has found the net 18-times overall this season, 12 of those goals coming in the Premier league, having scored the solitary goal in the Blues’ 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday evening, a win which takes Jose Mourinho’s side even closer to a league title crown.

FRENCH RETURN? 

Despite his fine form for Chelsea, he recently dropped a bombshell to fans’ of his current club, by admitting in an interview with French TV, that he would welcome a return to Ligue 1, a league he departed almost three-years ago.

“For the moment, I’m good at Chelsea,” Hazard told Lille TV.

“I have always said I want to stay there and win as many trophies as possible, but we’ll see after that.

“In football, you never know.

“But it’s true that if I come back to France, I have always said that I would come to Lille. Perhaps one day I’ll come back, I don’t know.”
