Eden Hazard has dropped a big hint that he will remain at Chelsea, when he confirmed that he will wear the No 10 jersey next season.

The Belgium international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Paris Saint-Germain interested in the Chelsea ace. According to the Mirror, the big-spending French club believes they can persuade the Blues into letting their star man leave for the right price.

The Ligue 1 champions have already done a deal for David Luiz and they have made it clear they want Hazard - and are preparing to go back for him. However, the playmaker who wore the number 17 Jersey for the last couple of seasons will move to his favoured number that was vacated by Juan Mata.

"I am very pleased to be able to wear the number 10 for Chelsea," the PFA Young Player of the Year Hazard said.

"It is my favourite number and is one I am used to wearing for the national team, as well as the one worn by some of my heroes from when I was a kid, like Zinedine Zidane."

"I hope it brings me a lot of luck in the future and I look forward to the fans seeing me in it next season," he concluded.

Hazard had voiced his frustrations about Chelsea's playing style in the wake of their Champions league exit, thus giving Laurent Blanc's side hope of getting their man.

Mourinho who had praised Hazard earlier in the season, responded by saying "There was nothing critical in what he said. When the comments come from a player like Eden it's normal because he's not the kind of player to sacrifice himself for the team."

"Normally you get these kinds of comments from players like him, from players that can't resolve a problem like we had in the first goal."

"Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and to leave his life for him," the former Real Madrid boss concluded.
