Eden Hazard tempted by PSG despite Chelsea FC and Man Utd interest


Share/Bookmark

Lille playmaker Eden Hazard, who is a target for the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid, has hinted that he could join Paris Saint-Germain.

The 21-year-old is a target for a number of clubs from across Europe, with Arsenal, Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester City, Man Utd and Tottenham all keen, along with several Serie A sides.

Hazard's agent recently stated that his client was looking to move away from Ligue 1 when he leaves Lille at some point this year.

But the Belgium international now appears to be ready to consider a move to the French capital following the recent appointment of Carlo Ancelotti.

"Of course, the interest from Paris is tempting. Paris Saint-Germain are a great club," he told Le Parisien.

"And especially with a coach like [Carlo] Ancelotti, that makes you even more keen. Only God know where I will be playing my football in 2012 though."

Chelsea were widely seen as favourites to sign Hazard this month, with the Blues sending scouts to watch him in action for Lille on more than one occasion in recent weeks.

But earlier this week the Daily Telegraph reported that Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas was not looking to complete a January deal as a result of him not being available to play in the Champions League.

It is thought Hazard would ideally like to join Real Madrid, however his agent has admitted that a move to the Premier League also appeals, which looks set to spark a scramble for his signature in the summer.
