Eden Hazard has told Paris Saint-Germain to forget about signing him this summer because he is “staying at Chelsea 100 per cent” and discussing a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old Belgium international midfielder has been heavily linked with a big-money move to the French Ligue 1 champions this summer.
However, Hazard has finally broken his silence on the speculation and has told Paris Saint-Germain that he will not be following Brazil international defender David Luiz from west London to the French capital later this summer.
The PFA Young Player of the Year has also confirmed that he is now entering into negotiations with Chelsea in an effort to thrash out terms on a longer deal.
Speaking to Belgian newspaper, La Derniere Heure, he said: “I won’t go to PSG, I am staying at Chelsea 100 per cent.
“We are talking with Chelsea about a contract extension, but there’s no hurry on that.
“Of course in football you never know but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there.
“It is only the beginning of the talks right now so we have time, but the fact that Chelsea have offered me a new deal means they have a lot of confidence in me that I can do a good job and that they can count on me.
“PSG never made any suggestions to me personally.”
Hazard can now focus on his country’s World Cup campaign which starts with a Group H opener against Algeria.
The Belgians, who are 20.00 to win the World Cup, can be backed at 1.49 to win the game while Algeria are 6.68 and the draw is 3.86.
