£50million deal for David


Paris Saint-Germain are still keen

to sign Chelsea midfielder Eden

Hazard this summer, according to

Laurent Blanc.

The mega-rich French side are also

set to seal a deal for David Luiz,

with a £50million fee agreed.

And Blanc admits that Hazard is

their 'Plan A' in terms of attacking

reinforcements this summer.

Laurent Blanc admits he would

like to bring Chelsea duo Oscar

and David Luiz to PSG

'A player who an eliminate three,

four players at any time a game is

something else,' Blanc said at a

press conference when asked on

why he liked Hazard.

'We do not know what to expect

with these players. They

destabilise the opponent.

'Of course. There is also a Plan C.

We will first focus on the areas of

game where you want to recruit

and propose three solutions. We

know we want Plan A.'

Knowing that trying to prise away

Jose Mourinho's most valuable

performer this season may be

difficult, Blanc also admitted that

he 'can love a player, knowing full

well I cannot have him.'

Despite Financial Fair Play

restrictions, PSG are looking for

between two and four recruits this

summer, with Jeremy Menez and

Alex definitely leaving as their

contracts expire.

Exact terms are still to be thrashed

out by PSG and Chelsea for Luiz,

but the transfer of the 27-year-old

Chelsea star will be the world's

most expensive for a defender,

beating the previous two highest

fees - both paid by PSG, for

Marquinos and Thiago Silva.
