Asked whether he’d be interested in moving to PSG by French newspaper Le Parisien, Hazard admitted that it would be hard to turn down the French giants or any other side who could feasibly win the Champions League.
“[It would be] difficult to say no to PSG,” Hazard began, “as with all teams capable of winning the Champions League.
“Now, PSG are part of this category, and for me, winning the Champions League is the main objective, but for the moment, I’m not dwelling on it.”
Intriguingly, Hazard has opted to make these comments only a day before Chelsea go head to head with Paris in a Champions League Last 16 first-leg bout.
The playmaker—who shone last season as Chelsea won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho—has struggled to impress this term, both under the Portuguese coach before his exit and under his replacement Guus Hiddink.
He has managed only two assists and zero goals in 23 Premier League outings so far this season, down from a whopping 14 goals and nine assists in 38 league showings last term.
PSG aren’t the only European giants whose interest may well be piqued by Hazard’s comments. As reported by the Daily Mail earlier in the month, the Belgian forward would likely snub the chance to move to the French side, instead preferring to hold out for a transfer to Real Madrid.
