Le Parisien reported two days ago that a ‘source at Chelsea’ had informed them that Eden Hazard said he would definitely join PSG next season. The brilliant in-form Chelsea forward did not say anything in public, but the French newspaper claimed that privately he had made his intentions clear.
However, Laurent Blanc was, as you would expect, soon asked about the issue. When asked about a potential move for the Belgian, Blanc was quoted as saying ‘Hazard? At PSG we do not want to sign all the players in the world, maybe we will bring in one.’
Just to completely cool down the rumours, the man Hazard himself addressed the issue after he scoring in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Hull City yesterday. He said: ‘I’m enjoying it here (at Chelsea), I like this club and will keep going here for a long time.’ It appears that the initial rumours have been calmed, but when PSG are involved it is dangerous to write anything off completely.
