Chelsea’s official club website have published quotes from Eden Hazard that all but confirm he will be staying with the Londers next season.
The club have rewarded their player of the year with the number 10 shirt, bequeathed by the previous owner Juan Mata last January.
On being granted the number Hazard told the club website: ‘I am very pleased to be able to wear the number 10 for Chelsea.
‘It is my favourite number and is one I am used to wearing for the national team, as well as the one worn by some of my heroes from when I was a kid, like Zinedine Zidane.
‘I hope it brings me a lot of luck in the future and I look forward to the fans seeing me in it next season.”
The decision to announce Hazard’s new number comes after reports emerged earlier in the day of an imminent bid from PSG…
