Eden Hazard says he never considered joining Paris Saint-Germain, despite the Ligue 1 giants repeatedly trying to sign him while he was at Chelsea.

The 28-year-old Belgium international was frequently targeted by the French champions during his seven-year spell in the Premier League but says his loyalties – as far as French football is concerned – will always be to former club Lille.

Hazard joined Lille as a teenager and went on to make close to 200 appearances for the club in all competitions, winning a league and cup double with them in 2010-11 before leaving for Chelsea a year later.

“They [PSG] often wanted to recruit me,” Hazard revealed to L’Equipe.

“I did not want to go back to Ligue 1, and not to another club other than Lille. I always told them no.

“In my head, it was clear. They are a club that could help me win the Champions League. But it was not in my plans. If I ever come back to Ligue 1, it will be with Lille.”

Hazard established himself as a modern club legend during his seven years at Chelsea, but eventually departed this summer to join Real Madrid.

A hamstring injury picked up in pre-season initially curtailed his start to life in La Liga, but in recent matches he has shown signs that he is nearing his best form. (Goal)
