Belgian superstar Hazard enjoyed a hugely impressive 2013/14 season at Stamford Bridge and such form has led to an inevitable wealth of transfer speculation surrounding the 23-year-old.
Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have been most frequently linked with a huge £60m bid for Hazard over recent weeks, with the club seemingly intent on completing deals for both him and club teammate David Luiz.
"‘I am staying at Chelsea 100 per cent sure. Of course in football you never know but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there,’ Hazard told Belgian newspaper Le Derniere Heure in an interview that was quoted by the Metro.
"And I am in discussions with Chelsea for a new contract. It is only the beginning of the talks right now so we have got time but the fact that Chelsea have offered me a new deal means that they have got a lot of confidence in me that I can do a good job and that they can count on me."
As well as announcing his desire to remain at Chelsea, Hazard also suggested that PSG never made him an offer to move to the Parc des Princes.
"PSG never made any suggestions to me personally."
Although Hazard has hinted that he wants to remain at the club on more than one occasion already this summer, it must nevertheless come as a enormous relief to supporters to see him confirm his plans beyond any doubt.
While Chelsea did not lift a trophy during Jose Mourinho's first season back in charge at the club, Hazard certainly caught the eye with 14 goals and seven assists in 35 top-flight games.
Indeed, were it not for the scintillating goalscoring performances of a certain Luis Suarez, then the former Lille starlet would surely have been an automatic selection for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Hazard - who is currently preparing for his first taste of World Cup football in Brazil - currently earns £170,000-per-week at Chelsea and you have to assume that any negotiations over extending his time in West London could include the option of a wage increase.
As for PSG, it looks as if they will have to take their interest elsewhere - for the time being at least.
