Eden Hazard's father has insisted there will be no updates on his son's future at Chelsea before the end of the World Cup.

The Belgian international will have a key role to play at the summer's tournament as his national team look to go about justifying their role as the best outside bet for glory in Brazil.

His father Thierry insists his focus is entirely on doing just that, and not on whether he will be leaving Chelsea to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

"I read transfer news on Eden every day, but at this moment nothing has happened," he told Sudpresse.

"Eden had asked me one thing, that he can focus on the World Cup. There will be no transfer news during the World Cup."

Reports emerged yesterday claiming that PSG are aiming to make a raid for Hazard this summer, and are willing to pay an eye-watering €75 million for the Chelsea man, and also hand him a €15 million-per-season contract.

Although Hazard was the Blues' best player last season, there have been some suggestions that he is unhappy at Stamford Bridge.

He was openly critical of Chelsea's style of play following their Champions League exit against Atletico Madrid last season - which prompted Jose Mourinho to hit back by claiming the Belgian wasn't 'the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team'.

Thierry Hazard also spoke out about another of his sons Thorgan Hazard, who is also on Chelsea's books.

He confirmed that he'd spoken to Mourinho about the 21-year-old, and added that he is likely to go on loan to a German club next season.
