Eden Hazard shows how to respond to transfer rumours

New, comments

Eden Hazard has an unfortunate reputation as a bit of a cad. It's not an undeserved one, of course -- he spent a decent chunk of 2012 flirting with every top side in Europe before finally signing with Chelsea -- but that reputation now precedes him, and it's a big part of why some supporters are in wailing and gnashing of teeth mode over Paris Saint-Germain's (very public) interest in the forward.

Hazard himself hasn't helped matters by appearing in a PSG shirt during a post-game interview and making comments about how his wife might possibly be interested in moving to Paris, but this time around, mercifully, he's replied to the speculation of a move with a completely by-the-book answer:

If you got to know me you'd know I'm not someone who is disturbed by [transfer rumours]. 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.

Perfect. The chances of anyone calming down after those quotes is basically nil, but at least no further fuel has been added to the fire. Personally, I wouldn't worry about Hazard going anywhere, especially after PSG just spent a ridiculous amount of cash on David Luiz.
