Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is back on the back pages of the tabloid press this Sunday.
Over in the Star, they fart that Hazard is now at the centre of a 4-way battle between Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Man City.
While that story may be complete make-believe, an even more egregious transfer rumour is being peddled by the Sun on Sunday.
According to their sources, PSG are looking a January move for Hazard as the Parisians are set to flash some big bucks.
PSG are ready to spend 75 million pounds on luring the 24-year-old from Stamford Bridge to the Parc de Princes, claim the Sun. Moreover, “PSG are willing to offer an improvement on the Belgian’s £200,000-a-week wages”.
Sounds tempting, right? Wrong!
In a pretty poor omission, the Sun have completely ignored quotes from Eden Hazard last year, in which the Belgian international categorically ruled out returning to Ligue 1 at this stage of his career. Hazard’s quotes were:
I don’t want to return to France, because I have won everything over there. I don’t want to say PSG a step backwards, but it will be a return to something I already know. I repeat the same on PSG every week.
For the record, Hazard is currently under contract at Chelsea until 2020.
