One player on the books at Stamford Bridge already destined to make a move across the Channel this summer is David Luiz, with PSG having agreed a big-money deal for the Brazilian defender.

It has been suggested that Hazard will soon be following him to the French capital, with PSG making no secret of their admiration for the Belgium international.

Hazard is, however, growing accustomed to dealing with transfer talk.

He says he has learned how to ignore the gossip and focus on his football, with the World Cup finals of greater interest to him at present than speculation surrounding his future.

Hazard said while away with his country: "If you got to know me you'd know I'm not someone who is disturbed by it.

"Every year they say I'm everywhere. It's part of the job.

"I focus on the World Cup, which is much more important than what is said in the papers."

Reports that Hazard could be tempted to quit Chelsea this summer intensified on the back of comments he made questioning the tactics of manager Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician hit back by claiming that Hazard was not 'a team player', but those inside the Stamford Bridge camp consider any differences to have been ironed out and harmony to have been restored.

German midfielder Andre Schurrle said: "The manager and the club know that Eden Hazard is a very talented player. I think we should not overestimate these things.

"Of course statements were published, but I believe Eden is very happy to be with Chelsea and Mourinho is happy to have him.

"Next season everything will be all right again."
