Eden Hazard told to quit Chelsea for PSG

Published Add your comment

Eden Hazard has been told to quit Chelsea for Paris Saint-Germain this summer by Belgium's national coach Marc Wilmots.

Wilmots sees Hazard as a key part of Belgium's future and the forward is set to play a key role for the Red Devils in this summer's World Cup.

However, Belgium's head coach believes Hazard can get even better if he trades west London for Paris this summer.

Hazard has become a key target for PSG in recent weeks with reports suggesting that they would be willing to pay up to £60m for his services.

So far Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has laughed off the speculation, insisting it would take a sensational offer to convince him to sell prized asset Hazard.

Hazard himself has so far refused to commit his future to Chelsea and recently fueled the fire by suggesting his future lies in the hands of his wife.

Should she decide that she wants to move to Paris, Hazard admitted he would be forced to take it seriously.

But Wilmots has already given his say on the matter and insists that a move to PSG, to play alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic could take his game to another level.

"It’s an opportunity to be taken into serious consideration if he wants to be part of the category of players who make the difference," said Wilmots to French TV.

"It’s time to raise his level. Hazard and Ibrahimovic are two different players – but highly complementary."

Wilmots may not have as bigger influence on Hazard's decisionmaking as his wife but as the national coach his words will hold some weight in the Chelsea stars mind.
