Eden Hazard expects future Paris Saint-Germain offer

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed that he fully expects Paris Saint-Germain to maintain their long-term bid to lure him away from Stamford Bridge next summer, but is adamant that he'd only ever consider a return to Ligue 1 with his former club Lille.

Hazard swapped Lille for Chelsea in £32m two years ago and clearly still has a soft spot for Les Dogues, the place where he truly excelled under Rudi Garcia and was the heartbeat of a double-winning team.

The 23-year-old is on the verge of signing a whopping £200,000-a-week deal for Chelsea and his love for Lille won't change that, but in an interview with Canal+ he did admit that he's already considering life after the Blues and that won't include PSG.

PSG told they'll never get their number one target

Hazard insisted in a weekend interview: "PSG are in the same world than Chelsea. But, to be a top club they need to win the Champions League. I'm fine with Chelsea and this is where I want to continue to grow. PSG are not in my head.

"Move back to Ligue 1? Maybe one day. But only for Lille. Ligue 1 is a great league in Europe but not the best. It's a league for youngsters."

Blues boss Jose Mourinho is acutely aware that PSG would love to steal his top star and has previously quoted them a quite outrageous price of £150m before he'll even consider sanctioning a transfer, but thankfully Hazard clearly sees his long-term future in the Premier League.

Time to kick on and prove his class

Mourinho's faith in the wing wizard needs to be rewarded on the pitch, but despite not making the headlines Hazard has enjoyed a quietly efficient start to the season.

Diego Costa's ruthless streak has seen Hazard take a back seat in terms of goal return, with just one goal against Leicester City to show for his eight games so far this season.

Mourinho won't be too concerned but from a personal point of view Hazard's talent needs a more consistent end product, just imagine how dominant Chelsea could be this season if he finds top gear during the course of the campaign.
