Eden Hazard has claimed he is “happy” at Chelsea, amid suggestions from Thiago Silva that the Belgium international would be the ideal signing for Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG have been linked with a move for Hazard, 23, for several months, with Thiago Silva saying on Monday that the Ligue 1 champions would welcome him “with open arms” if he decides to join the club.
However, it seems the playmaker, who scored an impressive hat trick as Chelsea beat Newcastle 3-0 on Saturday, is content with life at Stamford Bridge.
“I’m going through a good period at the moment,” Hazard told the club’s official website. “I try to enjoy myself every match with my teammates. It’s all going well.
“I’ve played a lot of very good games in my Chelsea career. The last against Man City was very good as well and it was a great performance on my part against Newcastle, but the whole team did well from the first to the last minute.
“I’m happy in life, I’m happy with my football and I’m happy at this club. I am in good form now, lots of nice things are happening and I hope to continue like this.”
Like Blues manager Jose Mourinho has done on a number of occasions this season, Hazard went on to suggest that Chelsea do not boast as strong a squad as some of their Premier League rivals.
However, the former Lille player is a little more upbeat than his boss when assessing the club’s chances of winning the title this term.
“At the moment we are playing well and picking up plenty of points. We are first in the table now and we hope we can stay there until the end of the season,” he said.
“I think we are less well-armed than City, even though when we played there we won. Arsenal lost heavily at Liverpool, but they are a great side too so we will see. There isn’t a lot of difference between the teams so it will be in the details. The best will come out on top.”
