“Paris is not for now. Paris is magical, as they say. Of course it attracts me. But for now, go, no. In France, I do not want to build a rival club Lille. It would be inconsistent. People would not understand, and I have some beautiful things to live here to grow the club,” said Hazard.
“”I stayed this year in Lille because I still have things to work and prove. But now I’m ready. I feel able to intrude in other countries.”
