Hazard himself has played up his interest in joining the La Liga champions in the past, though the Blues have managed to rebuff any attempts to pry him away thus far.

But in an interview with Canal+, Hazard also admitted to contacts with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, though he denied any interest in joining them, citing his old loyalties to his former club, Lille.

He said, “There have been contacts in the past with PSG,'” Hazard told Canal+. “But I haven’t been tempted. If I have to go back to France one day, it would be in Lille.

“For now, like I said, I’m staying at Chelsea,” Hazard said. “I have one year left on my contract after this year. Moving this winter is impossible. I can’t leave in January because of the club and the supporters.

“It will be possible in the summer, but It’s also possible that I stay my whole career at Chelsea.”
