Hazard in talks over new Chelsea deal
Eden Hazard has told Belgian newspaper Le Derniere Heure he is "100 percent" certain to stay at Chelsea this summer and has even opened talks over a new deal.
Persistent rumours in France have linked Hazard, 23, with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, the side he supported as a child, and there were even claims he met with the French champions prior to their Champions League quarterfinal meeting with the Blues in March.
However, Chelsea sources had earlier told ESPN FC that there was never any prospect of the Belgium international being sold and the player, who arrived from Lille in 2012, has revealed he is in negotiations to renew his contract.
He said: "I am staying at Chelsea, 100 percent. There is nothing more to say -- everything is clear. Of course in football you never know, but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there -- the rumours exist to sell newspapers. Moreover, I am in discussions with Chelsea for a new contract.
"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 had already appeared happy to remain at Stamford Bridge after announcing that he would wear the No. 10 shirt vacated by Juan Mata next season.
