Transfer news: Eden Hazard's wife could decide if the Belgian is to move to PSG

The Chelsea star may leave Stamford Bridge on his spouses' say so

Chelsea may be forced to sell Eden Hazard to French champions Paris Saint Germain if the Belgian’s wife says she wants to move to France.

The Chelsea man revealed in an interview with Canal+ that if his other half says she wants a move to Paris, he may have no other option but to leave West London.

Hazard, who has netted 17 goals for Chelsea this season, told Canal+: “If my wife was to say: 'Honey, I'd like you to go to PSG', I would have to take it into account.”

The interview will be shown before PSG’s home game against Remis on Saturday in which Hazard admitted that there has been further interest in him from the French side.


The 23-year-old scored Chelsea’s away goal in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday night and has been a target of the French league leaders in recent seasons.

Hazard has been pivotal in Chelsea's fight for the Premier League crown this season and will try and help the Blues to overcome the two goal deficit held by his possible future club when PSG come to Stamford Bridge for the second leg on Tuesday night.
