Chelsea fans feared the worst when Eden Hazard claimed it would be hard to reject a move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year.
The Belgian suffered from poor form throughout the 2015/16 term to the point where it seemed a move away was his only option.
However, a late resurgence and superb goals against Tottenham and Liverpool saw Hazard show exactly what he’s capable of and why Chelsea need him to shun interest from across Europe.

And he’s now commented on his future, confirming that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Amidst interest from PSG and Real Madrid, he said, according to The Sun: “Yes, PSG are not part of my plans.
“I have a contract until 2020, I feel good here and I don’t want to finish on a season like that.
“I left Lille as a boss, and I’d like to leave Chelsea as a boss, if I do leave one day. But for the time being I’m here, of course.”
Hazard also commented on his struggles last term.
“Everything was complicated, it was difficult,” the Belgian added.
“Honestly, for five or six years I’d always been at my best and this was the first season where it was more difficult. But everyone knows that in a career there are high and lows.
“For the time being, touch wood, I’ve only experienced the highs - except for this season, when it wasn’t quite as good.
“But it was meant to happen this season. I hope it doesn’t happen again next season.”
I’m sure Chelsea fans will agree with you there, Eden.
