Chelsea star plays down PSG link

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has played down reports linking him with a move to Ligue-1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, Metro reports.

PSG have already secured David Luiz from Chelsea in an estimated £50million deal and is hoping Hazard would follow his teammate this summer.

The Belgian star has been linked to the Qatar-owned club ever since the Blues faced them in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, with coach Laurent Blanc also interested in Brazilian Oscar.

However the Chelsea attacker is unconcerned by the French club’s interest, even after Blanc expressed his admiration in the way Hazard easily eliminates his opponents.

“If you got to know me you’d know I’m not someone who is disturbed by it,” he said.

“Every year they say I’m everywhere. It’s part of the job. I focus on the World Cup which is much more important than what is said in the papers.”

On the other hand Jose Mourinho is looking to bring Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi from PSG, fuelling speculation there may be a swap deal.

Chelsea are believed to have already sealed a move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, but is still looking for more attackers with Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, and Romelu Lukaku not deemed good enough for the Portuguese boss.
