Eden Hazard looks PSG bound after latest Twitter post…
Read more Chelsea FC gossip.
Chelsea’s Player of the Year last term Eden Hazard has dropped a huge hint that he’ll be signing for Ligue 1 champions PSG…
During the middle May, the 23-year-old was being consistently linked with a £50m to the Parisian giants, who had made him their prime summer transfer target.
The rumours had quietened down, but now Hazard has tweeted a message to PSG’s superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, asking the forward to ‘drop by for a quick lesson in French’, fuelling speculation that the winger is Paris bound…
Nice to be in Sweden! @Ibra_official official you want me to drop by for a quick lesson in French?

The news will no doubt infuriate Chelsea fans, who watched Hazard notch 17 goals in all competitions last term, providing the most assists as well.
However, he fell out with the famously difficult to please Jose Mourinho towards the end of the season after failing to properly contribute defensively in the Champions League tie with Atletico Madrid, which Chelsea eventually lost.
Hazard criticised Chelsea’s defensive approach, but his manager cruelly bit back…
“Normally you get this kind of comment from players like him: from players who can’t resolve a problem like we had with the first goal. Against Atletico in Madrid, Willian played on the left side and Ashley Cole was protected all game,” Mourinho said.
“Against Liverpool, [Andre] Schurrle played on the left and a dangerous player like Glen Johnson was completely under control. Eden is the kind of player who is not so mentally ready to look back at his left-back and live his life for him.”
As a result, the rumours linking the exceptionally talented attacker to PSG began to grow, and it now seems that they will reach boiling point.
If the Blues do sell Hazard to PSG, they will have recouped £100m in transfer fees to just one club, with Brazilian central defender David Luiz expected to join the French after the World Cup.
