Chelsea officials have become tired of Paris Saint Germain's public pursuit of attacker Eden Hazard.
According to the Daily Mail, the constant stream of headlines focussed on Hazard in the build-up to Chelsea and PSG's Champions League tie has irritated the Stamford Bridge club.
In the lead-up to the first-leg PSG coach Laurent Blanc described the Chelsea player as "very impressive…with a bright future" while a number of PSG players have lavished praise on Hazard in interviews with French media.
Speculation has always surrounded the 23-year-old star, with PSG thought to be long-term admirers of the player.
But the meeting between the two clubs in the Champions League has sent the rumours into overdrive, with reports claiming the defending French champions are ready to mount a £50m bid at the end of the season.
The chatter over a move to PSG has coincided with a dip in form, with Hazard failing to match the heights he reached earlier this year in recent weeks.
He was a second half substitute against Stoke City at the weekend, although that decision was taken with an eye on tonight's crucial Champions League second-leg at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian international reportedly ended his association with his former agent in 2013, and has not yet decided on a replacement.
And the report claims officials claiming to negotiate on behalf of PSG have registered their interest in talking with the player over a move. They reportedly approached lawyers working with Hazard as the player decides upon the best agency to represent his interests.
