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


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


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


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."
