Reigning Ligue 1 champions PSG have been heavily linked with an approach for the former Lille playmaker for some time.

Blanc has been open in his admiration of the 23-year-old, fuelling speculation that a big-money bid was imminent.

PSG are, however, prepared to shelve their transfer plans after being left in little doubt by Chelsea that Hazard is not for sale.

The Belgium international, who is currently away on World Cup duty, has also revealed that he has no intention of pushing for a move.

Blanc, therefore, is hoping to draw a line under the matter, with one raid on the Stamford Bridge ranks for Brazilian defender David Luiz enough for one summer.

He told RMC Brazil: “Hazard is a top player, but I think Chelsea want to keep him.

“A lot of players are going to be mentioned, but we have already got our priority, David Luiz.

“We’re going to wait a bit before making any more signings. Be patient.”

While ruling out one possible incoming, Blanc admits there may be outgoings at the Parc des Princes over the coming weeks – with the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marquinhos and Javier Pastore being linked with moves elsewhere.

Blanc added: “Some players will ask to leave, we’ll have to see. For the moment, that’s not the case.

“We’re going to bring in some players, one or two, of great quality.”
