PSG manager enigmatic when it comes to Hazard speculation

Chelsea player Eden Hazard stoked the fires during the week, reportedly commenting that he’ll be joining PSG.

During the week, several sources reported that Chelsea star Hazard had apparently told one of his team-mates that he will be joining PSG next summer.

Hazard has been in fine form for the Blues this season, scoring nine goals and making five assists in 20 Premier League appearances. And that's the sort of form which will attract the biggest and richest clubs in the world, including Ligue 1 Champions PSG.

The English press reported Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s response to the speculation, claiming the player’s value is now ‘crazy’ and that the club aren’t willing to sell in any case:

'I think his value is a crazy value, so Eden....is not a player Chelsea is interesting in selling anyway...I think no chance that Eden can leave'.

On Twitter, however, PSG boss Laurent Blanc decided to be a bit more enigmatic, neither admitting nor declining speculation about the Chelsea player.


Now Chelsea fans may well think that Hazard is 'the One', but does Laurent Blanc ?
