Eden Hazard has confirmed that he has no intention of leaving Premier League title favourites Chelsea to return to France, seemingly ruling out any potential future transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

Blues superstar Hazard began his senior career across the channel with Lille, winning the Ligue 1 title in 2011 before moving to Stamford Bridge in a big-money deal the following summer. Despite having achieved such success at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, however, the Belgian has been frequently linked with a possible switch back to the continent with wealthy PSG known to hold a long-term interest.

No France return

Despite those links having resurfaced throughout the summer, Hazard maintains he has no intention of leaving Chelsea in order to return to the country where the irrepressible playmaker first made a name for himself.

"I don't want to return to France, because I have won everything over there," he exclaimed in an interview that was brought to our attention by the Daily Express.

"I don't want to say PSG is a step backwards, but it will be a return to something I already know. I repeat the same on PSG every week. I feel good at Chelsea." - Eden Hazard

While this is certainly not the first time that Hazard - who is reportedly on the verge of signing a new deal in West London worth a cool £200k-per-week - has confidently refuted rumours suggesting he could be headhunted by the reigning French champions, Jose Mourinho will nonetheless be pleased to see his key asset re-affirm his commitment to Chelsea moving forward.

Impressive form

Hazard - who won the club's Player of the Year award last season and was also voted as the best young player in the Premier League - enjoyed a stellar 2013/14 and has also looked very good indeed during the first few weeks of the new campaign.

Chelsea as a whole have made a tremendous start to proceedings and, spearheaded by the brilliance of Hazard, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, currently sit in first place - five points ahead of key title rivals Manchester City - having amassed six wins from their opening seven games. 

Mourinho's side return to action following the recent international break on Saturday with a potentially tricky trip across the capital to face Neil Warnock's Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
