Chelsea star rules out PSG transfer

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has ruled out a move to big spending Ligue 1 club, Paris Saint-Germain.

The Belgian has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the reigning Premier League champions, with PSG and Real Madrid being most heavily linked with wanting his services.

However, speaking to French media outlet SFR Sport, Hazard has said that if he returns Ligue 1, he will only play for his former club Lille:

“There are some big clubs, and it was an attractive league even when I played in it six years ago.

“Big stars want to play in Ligue 1, and that is a good thing. But if I am to return it will be to play for Lille – they are my club.

“I still have a career to carve out, with a number of seasons ahead of me.

“I am at Chelsea for the time being, and I don’t know where my career will take me in the future, but if I do go back to France it will be to play for Lille.”

Hazard moved to Chelsea back in 2012, completing a £32m move from the French club, and has since gone on to score 72 goals in 253 appearances for the Blues, winning two Premier League titles, one League cup and the UEFA Europa League.

Paris Saint-Germain have recently smashed the world transfer record by purchasing Neymar from Barcelona for £198m. They are also committed to spending £166m on Kylian Mbappe, who has moved to the Capital, initially on loan with an obligation to buy.
