Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard has confirmed that he will remain at Chelsea this summer.
The 23-year-old, who joined the Blues from Lille for £32 million in 2012, was strongly linked with a move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks.
There were also rumours about a disagreement between Hazard and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, after the Portuguese tactician had earlier criticised the player for not giving his 100 percent on the pitch.
However, Hazard, who scored 14 goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League last season, has now dismissed all rumours, stating that he will remain with the west London club this summer.
"I am staying at Chelsea, 100%. There is nothing more to say - everything is clear. Of course in football you never know, but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there - the rumours exist to sell newspapers," Belgian newspaper Le Derniere Heure quoted Hazard.
The winger, who is currently preparing for the World Cup in Brazil, has also revealed that he is negotiating a new deal with the Blues.
"Moreover, I am in discussions with Chelsea for a new contract. It is only the beginning of the talks right now so we have time, but the fact that Chelsea have offered me a new deal means they have a lot of confidence in me that I can do a good job and that they can count on me. PSG never made any suggestions to me personally," added Hazard, who will be donning Chelsea' no 10 shirt (previously worn by Juan Mata) next season.
Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta is confident that his Spain teammate Diego Costa will make a massive impact in the Premier League once he joins the Blues.
The 25-year-old striker is on the verge of completing a 32 million switch from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea, after successfully passing a medical at Stamford Bridge. And Azpilicueta feels Costa, who netted 27 goals from 35 appearances in La Liga last season, will easily adapt to the Premier League.
"Physically, Diego is very strong and the Premier League is very demanding in that aspect. I'm sure he'll adapt - he can adapt to any situation," the Daily Star quoted the wing-back.
