Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard: I rejected PSG multiple times

Eden Hazard has revealed he rejected approaches from Paris Saint-Germain numerous times when he was a Chelsea player.

The Belgian international arrived from Chelsea this summer in a €100m deal but, after suffering early injury problems, has yet to hit form for his new side.

He had continually been linked with a move to the French champions, but he insisted he would never return to Ligue 1 to play for a club other than Lille – his team before moving to West London.

Hazard has become a regular starter for Los Blancos in an attacking front three which also includes the in-form Karim Benzema along with one of Rodrygo Goes, Gareth Bale or Vinicius Junior.

“They often wanted to recruit me, but I didn't want to go back to Ligue 1 to another club other than Lille,” Hazard told L’Equipe, as cited by Marca.

“And I always told them no. In my head, it was clear. If I go back to France, it will be Lille.”

The 28-year-old has scored one goal for Madrid in 11 appearances this season.
