Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has rejected newspaper claims that he was interested in a move to French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain, reports the Daily Mail.

The Belgian international, who recently signed a new long term deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit, has insisted that he was always going to stay with the club. 

Speaking to Telefoot, Hazard said: "PSG? Personally, there was never anything in that. The newspapers talked about it a lot but I knew from the start I would stay at Chelsea."

Hazard, of course, is set to feature in the club's Champions League showdown with PSG tomorrow evening, however he's insisted that the tie will be different to the one that took place last year. 

"I don't think it was a miracle against them last year. We shouldn't have lost 3-1 in the first leg, we should have played better some counterattacks. And we made two defensive errors.

"We were a little bit lucky to score in the last minute. It will be a whole other game this year. We're on a good run, we're first in the league and we've got reinforcements."
