Eden Hazard insists his best is yet to come with Chelsea
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard claims his best is yet to come. The Belgian star insists his best days are ahead of him after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho labeled the winger as “the best young player in the world”.
The 23-year-old Belgium international played brilliantly in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and then scored a hat-trick against Newcastle United in a 3-0 win to take the Blues to the top of the table.
Hazard has now scored 12 Premier League goals, which are already three more than his whole tally from last season. The highly-rated winger is now the one of the most sought after players in the world.
The rumor mills claims Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a record shattering bid for Hazard, i.e. if they are unable to first negotiate with Mourinho over a deal for Hazard. PSG captain Thiago Silva has already endorsed the move and backed the club to sign in Hazard quickly.
Last month Mourinho announced that rumors about Hazard moving to PSG were absolutely bogus. The Portuguese boss said that there was “no chance” of a move and that he was determined to turn Hazard into a massive star at Chelsea.
“There was never a question of leaving Chelsea. I feel good at this club, and I still have a lot of things to do here,” Hazard told L’Equipe. “I'm flattered to read that PSG are interested in me, but that doesn't worry me. I am certain of what I have in mind, where I'm going. No one will change my mind. The objective is to be the best with Chelsea.
“A youngster like me learns on a daily basis by being in contact with seasoned pros like [Frank] Lampard, [John] Terry, [Petr] Cech, [Samuel] Eto'o. They have won so many things. I try to inspire myself from what they do on a daily basis. It makes me grow. That's why I think my best years are ahead of me.”
Hazard believes Chelsea aren’t yet prepared to challenge for the Champions League title this year, but the prodigal youngster does believe that his side can lift the Premier League title. Hazard believes is Chelsea are able to replicate the form they produced against Manchester City in the remaining games of the season then the Blues will surely win the Premier League.
Hazard, how arrived at Chelsea in the summer of 2012, has been tied down to a contract of five years. Therefore, if a bid does arrive for Hazard this summer it will most probably be huge.
