Jose Mourinho has revealed in an interview with French publication L'Equipe that he is unwilling to sell Eden Hazard at any price, and wants to build his Chelsea team around him for the next 10 years.

The Belgium international has been the Blues' standout star in 2013/14, going from strength to strength since his £32million move from Lille in 2012.

Since Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge in the summer, Hazard has impressed significantly, so much so that the Portuguese tactician hailed the winger as the best player in the world under the age of 24.

The former Real Madrid boss is absolutely adamant that the 23-year-old will remain at Chelsea for the long-term future, ruling out any possibility of a sale this summer.

"No. Eden is our boy," he said. "This is the guy we want to have for ten years, and we want to build the team around Eden.

"He is a player who has this style of football and being that we want."

Hazard has scored 12 goals in 27 Premier League appearances this season, already bettering his return of nine goals during his debut campaign.

He's played an instrumental part in Chelsea's rise to the top of the Premier League table, and could yet help Mourinho's men win the title in 2013/14.
