Fan poll places Chelsea's Eden Hazard ahead of Messi and Pogba amid PSG desire

Lionel Messi 2

PSG fans would rather sign Chelsea's Eden Hazard than Lionel Messi, according to the results of a new survey.

After a failure to progress past the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the second year running, expect ambitious PSG to make a splash in the transfer market this summer.

The big question however is who they will sign?

A commonly suggested object of their affection is Chelsea's Eden Hazard, although the Blues have repeatedly stated they have no intention of selling the Belgian.

That does not stop fans wishing it would come true, with a poll on French website Le10sport valuing him above Barcelona magician Lionel Messi and Juventus' Paul Pogba.

Supporters would only rather see Cristiano Ronaldo than the Chelsea man.

Here are the results at the time of writing:

Cristiano Ronaldo (21 per cent), Eden Hazard (20 per cent), Marco Reus (14 per cent), Lionel Messi (11 per cent), Paul Pogba (7 per cent).

Hazard's skills are renowned in France, from his time spent with Lille, firing them to Ligue 1 success in 2010/11.

Lionel Messi is enduring a tricky spell at Barcelona at present, although perhaps the reason PSG fans do not want him, is the price it would cost them to bring him in, yet this logic does not apply to Cristiano Ronaldo, their most desired player.

For Hazard to be considered alongside the two of them is a great compliment, as he has stated his desire to reach the same level as the Ballon d'Or winners.

What the Belgian has to do is work out which club, PSG or Chelsea, gives him the best platform to win the accolade - yet even if he wants a move, don't grant on Jose Mourinho granting it.
