Hazard to Chelsea 'a possibility'

Lille playmaker Eden Hazard insists he has not yet decided where he will be plying his trade next season but admits Chelsea's Champions League victory has made a potential switch to Stamford Bridge more attractive.

Hazard, one of Europe's most sought-after rising stars, has been heavily linked with a host of big-name clubs including Premier League rivals Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, after scoring a hat-trick in what was almost certainly his final game for Lille last night, the 21-year-old Belgium international said he had not made a decision on his future yet.

"I have not made my choice yet. I haven't signed anything," said Hazard, who also suggested Chelsea's triumph in Munich on Saturday had provided him with further food for thought.

When asked about a possible move to the Blues, he was quoted as saying by France Football: "Now, yes. They won the Champions League so they will be back in that competition next season.

"It's important for me to play in that competition. Chelsea are a great team with great players. Of course it's a possibility."
