Eden Hazard has said that there is ‘no chance’ that he will join PSG, but stopped short of saying that he will stay at Chelsea, saying that a summer transfer away from Stamford Bridge is ‘possible’.
Hazard’s potential Chelsea exit has rumbled on for a number of years now, with the Belgian establishing himself as one of the finest players currently plying his trade in the Premier League.
PSG and Real Madrid have most strongly been linked with the 27-year-old’s services, but having arrived in West London from French club Lille in 2012, Hazard ruled out a switch to the Parc des Princes saying that his former side are the only team he would want to play for in Ligue 1.
“There have been contacts in the past with PSG,” Hazard told Canal+. “But I haven’t been tempted. If I have to go back to France one day, it would be in Lille.
“But today, there is no chance that I’ll come back in the French league.”
However, with Real Madrid still interested in signing the mercurial attacker, he refused to rule out quitting the club next summer.
“For now, like I said, I’m staying at Chelsea,” Hazard said. “I have one year left on my contract after this year. Moving this winter is impossible. I can’t leave in January because of the club and the supporters.
“It will be possible in the summer, but It’s also possible that I stay my whole career at Chelsea.”
Chelsea are thought to be prepared to make him the most well-paid footballer in the world to keep him at the club.
