French champions Paris Saint-Germain have made Chelsea’s Eden Hazard their top target for the coming transfer window, according to reports from Le Parisien.

The Belgian attacker was one of the Blues’ stars last season as they narrowly missed out on a Premier League and Champions League double, yet there is speculation that all is not well between the player and the club.

Hazard launched a thinly-veiled attack on manager Jose Mourinho’s tactics after their elimination from Europe at the semi-final stage, claiming that the team was not set up to play attractive football.

‘The Special One’ responded by slating his forward’s defensive work rate, suggesting that lapses in concentration on his part had cost Chelsea in big games.

All of this has alerted PSG – who were interested prior to these events – and it is understood that a massive £49m bid is being prepared at the Parc des Princes.

Hazard is seen as the ideal third name alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in attack as the Parisians plot to establish themselves as a genuine world footballing superpower after a rapid rise following their Qatari takeover a few seasons ago.

The 23-year-old also has a sound knowledge of Ligue 1 after winning the title in 2011 with Lille prior to moving to London.

Chelsea are unlikely to be keen to sell their Player of the Year, but the lure of the money on offer at PSG and the chances of silverware may turn Hazard’s head.

    I think you need to start thinking for yourself as a writer and stop rewriting old stories. Eden’s quote was manipulated by the French press, Mourinho gave him constructive criticism (he was responsible for 2 Atletico goals), and then Eden recently came out and said he agrees w/Jose about his need to improve. When Jose has the right players, he plays a balanced attractive style. His first years w/Chelsea he had Robben & Duff out wide, with Crespo and Didier as his target men. He won La Liga w/Real setting a record for goals in a season. Can’t play anything pleasing with a strike force of Torres, Eto’o, and Ba.
