Transfer news: Eden Hazard rubbishes Paris Saint Germain link
Chelsea winger reaffirms his commitment to the Blues in the wake of continued interest from PSG
Monday 20 January 2014
Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has rejected talk of a €60m move to Paris Saint Germain after reports in France described the move as 'a certainty' to happen.
The Belgian international has been in exceptional form for the Blues this season, attracting interest from the Parisian giants.
The former Lille winger, though, is in no hurry to return to Ligue 1 and is very happy at Stamford Bridge.
"For four years, during each transfer market, there are rumours I will go here and there," Hazard told Tele-Foot.
"Paris has money, Paris is a great club. But I am at Chelsea, there is no chance to see me leaving during that transfer market or during the next one, I think.
"I don't want to leave. To me, Chelsea is the best place to improve."
Hazard had previously been quoted as saying "I will certainly be joining Paris next summer" but Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, isn't willing to entertain any interest.
"He was known by lots of quality – which he keeps – but not being very effective in terms of real production," Mourinho said.
"At the same time, without that culture of knowing how to defend as a team. He has improved in every aspect.
"Now he works very hard for the team, he wants the initiative of the game. He does not disappear after doing something, to reappear after 30 minutes, to show that fantastic ability – he wants to be influential all game.
"He now has the idea that ‘I am a top player and I have to be there every match’."
