Chelsea star Eden Hazard comments on his future

Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to Ligue 1 side PSG.

The French champions have been interested in the winger for a number of months, with a report in the Daily Mail in September outlining their interest, but he has announced his intention to stay with Chelsea in an interview with the Independent.

Hazard himself has continually refuted any claims that he wants to depart Stamford Bridge, and he was quoted by the Telegraph as confirming his desire to stay and win titles with the Blues.

However, that has not stopped a number of clubs circling the Premier League’s standout performer this season, and reigning European champions Real Madrid are reported by the Mirror as potentially selling Gareth Bale to fund a move for the 24-year-old.

He has yet to sign a new contract with the Blues, but the BBC outlined in December that talks were progressing well between club and player, and a verbal agreement was all but confirmed. It seems likely that it will be just a matter of weeks until the new five-year contract is announced, and he has highlighted his happiness with the West London club once again, telling the Independent that playing for Chelsea is all that one can dream of, as they are one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The reigning PFA Young Player of the Year said: “It’s really good here. I like this city, my team-mates are very good, I like everybody here – the staff, the medical department, everybody. It has been the same since I arrived here in 2012, it’s a very good club to be at.

“When you play for Chelsea, you play for one of the biggest clubs in the world and that is what everyone wants to do in their profession – be at the top.

“The atmosphere is very good in all the stadiums here, not only the atmosphere around the stadium, but also on the pitch – it’s very good.”

Considering Hazard looks well on his way to being one of the best players in world football, Blues fans will be delighted that he appears to be loving his time at Stamford Bridge, with no intention of leaving.
