PSG set to make £60m bid for Eden Hazard

Paris Saint-Germain are set to test Chelsea with an enormous £60 million bid for Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard.

This is according to reports from The Daily Mirror, which further claim that the free-spending Ligue 1 champions appear to believe that the Premier League outfit could be ready to part with the player.

Despite the 2013/14 season not having long since reached its exciting conclusion, Hazard - who will travel to the World Cup this summer's as Marc Wilmots' key offensive weapon in Group H - has hardly been out of the transfer gossip columns in recent weeks, with PSG clearly keen to bring him to the Parc des Princes along with current club teammate David Luiz.

Despite the huge sum that could come the club's way as the result of such a sale, Chelsea fans would presumably reacted with horror if the club were to cash in on their top performer.

Hazard displayed admirable form at Stamford Bridge during his first campaign at Chelsea and was utterly electric last year after fully adapting to the pace of life in the Premier League.

Although the Blues ended their first season back under the management of Jose Mourinho without a trophy, Hazard nevertheless drew a plethora of plaudits for his virtuoso midfield displays.

His increasingly fractious relationship with Mourinho appears to have increased speculation that he could depart West London, however, although Hazard himself did not seem particularly enthusiastic about the potential of a move to PSG in quotes attributed to the 23-year-old earlier this week.

£60 million may well be a difficult fee to turn down for Chelsea, although they surely must do so if they wish to challenge for honours in the near future.
