Report - Hazard's representative met with PSG last March

Paris Saint-Germain seem determined to try and sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Paris Saint-Germain just won’t let Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard look forward to playing next season in the Premier League with the Blues.

Reports this morning have suggested they are ready to go all out to add Hazard to their squad for next season, following a big money deal for Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Hazard has listened to what PSG have had to say, with the Mail suggesting a message was relayed through his representatives last season.

“It is understood a Hazard representative met Sheik Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, PSG’s owner in March. PSG can offer Hazard a five-year deal worth £230,000 a week,” writes Simon Jones.

PSG’s chances of getting him are slim, regardless of their obvious wealth, not hampered by a huge fine for breaking UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.

The player has not expressed any desire to leave West London and in many cases, has already expressed that he’s looking forward to continuing his form for the Blues next season.

Jose Mourinho has also stayed very quiet in relation to suggesting that Hazard could walk away from the club this summer.

Bear in mind that Mourinho is losing a lot of experience from his squad for next season in the form of Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard, two older players than Hazard but similar in term of calibre and profile.

Hazard is a big presence in the current Chelsea side and in light of the exits of those two players, Mourinho is likely to tighten up in the transfer market to prevent any further high profile departures.

PSG will always circle around Hazard until the transfer window shuts because he’s a world class player but one meeting with one of his representatives doesn’t mean that a deal is any more likely.

It may well have been arranged on PSG’s part but if Hazard is the sort of player who could be tempted by a bigger personal deal in France over staying in a more competitive league with Chelsea, Mourinho would have already pulled the trigger.
