Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are still interested in signing winger Eden Hazard from Chelsea.

The Belgian international, 24, only recently signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal with the Premier League leaders worth a staggering £57m. This will not phase the French side as club captain Thiago Silva has said that he still dreams of linking up with the winger.

Would Hazard join PSG?

With the Chelsea star recently signing a new contract the likelihood of him joining moneybags PSG is getting slimmer, as also Hazard publically said last year that he would not be interested in moving to the French capital. The former Lille player seems to be enjoying his time at Chelsea playing under Jose Mourinho.

It would cost a lot of money for the transfer and also the player’s wages, with PSG’s high supply of money they would be one of the only few teams in the footballing world which could afford to pay for the 24-year-old.

Silva full of praise

Club and country captain Silva has praised Hazard recently saying: "He [Hazard] is not just good, he is very good. If he really comes, [he] will be very welcome.

"All their players are very accomplished, but I believe the Brazilians always make the difference, plus Hazard."

The two giants face each other in the Champions League knockout stage. In which The Parisians will be looking to get their revenge after narrowly losing out last season on away goals where Demba Ba grabbed a late goal at Stamford Bridge, with the score over both games being tied at 3-3.
