Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard has revealed why he didn’t leave Premier League club Chelsea for French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
Eden Hazard talked about PSG during an exclusive interview with French publication L’Equipe.
According to him, PSG wanted to sign him when he was at Chelsea.
Hazard further stated that a transfer to PSG is impossible mainly due to his allegiance to fellow French Ligue 1 club Lille.
The Belgian international star made his name at Lille before joining Chelsea in a £32m deal in the summer of 2012 shortly after the Blues won the Champions League title.
