Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has told Eden Hazard to concentrate on getting his form for Chelsea rather than thinking of a move away from Chelsea.
The manager sent the note of warning to Hazard after he openly declared a move to Paris Saint-Germain would be “hard to turn down”.
Hazard told Le Parisien in an interview earlier this week that he has his sights set on Champions League as his main aim, and also added that it would be hard to reject a move to PSG or any other top Football club.
“It is difficult to say no to PSG, or to any of the teams capable of winning the Champions League. PSG are now in that category. And for me, winning the Champions League is my main aim.” The play maker said.
The timing of his confession seems to be wrong or disheartening to the fans regarding that Chelsea are in the most important week of their season so far as they are playing PSG in the round of 16 Champions League tie and have Manchester City to play in FA Cup at Etihad on Sunday.
Hazard has been on the radar of Real Madrid and PSG after his wonderful and excellent form last season when Chelsea won the Premier League together with Capital One Cup.
Hazard tried to cover up his statement with his contract saying “My contract with Chelsea ends 2020, For the moment, I’m not really thinking about (a move),” but the deed has been done.
Two weeks earlier, he was caught in a similar kind of comments favouring a move to Real Madrid with his comments indicating his desire to play under French boss Zinedine Zidane.
Hazard is among the high earners at Stamford Bridge as he just signed a £200,000 a week contract with Chelsea last year but the 25-year-old player has dwindled in form and he is yet to score a Premier League goal since April 2015.
Guus Hiddink wants him to prove he is a top player at Stamford Bridge and be of good value to the team. Hazard is having a barren run of form as he failed to score in any of the English Premier League matches for Chelsea this season.
The manager said: “Well, he has a contract that he extended but first he must get fit and show he is a top player and then for Chelsea, which is a top club, he can be of huge value.
“In the near future there will be more speculation about who is coming here or who is going but I don’t go into that.
