Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has warned star player Eden Hazard that a move to Paris Saint-Germain will be a backwards step instead of progressive.
The Belgian, who won the Premier League player of the year award last season has failed to match that height this season and he is yet to register a league goal in this campaign but the manager retains confidence in the former Lille forward.
In recent weeks, Hazard has been flirting with a move to PSG or Spanish giants Real Madrid as he revealed his admiration for both clubs but Hiddink insists that the 25-year-old is too good to ply his trade in France.
“He has a contract that he extended, but first he must now get fit and show he is a top player and then for Chelsea, which is a top club, he can be of huge value,” he said.
“In the near future, there will be more speculation about who is coming here or who is going, but I don’t go into that. PSG have big targets to win the Champions League.
“Step by step, they have gathered a reputation that they are very serious to be one of the biggest teams in Europe, so this challenge I can understand.
“But it is a different league, they are now 24 points ahead I think.
“It is not a bad league, but this team is on top of that. For me, I think big, big, big players always like to be in the biggest leagues which are the Premier League and La Liga, and also the Bundesliga.”
Chelsea face Paris Saint-Germain later today in the Champions League round of 16 first leg match.
