Eden Hazard has reignited speculation over his Chelsea future by saying it would be tough to turn down an approach from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 25-year-old Belgian has been repeatedly courted by Real Madrid and PSG after his stunning performances last season when Chelsea won the Premier League and League Cup.
Chelsea head to Paris on Tuesday for the first leg of their last-16 clash in the Champions League, a competition they will probably need to win to ensure they are involved next season considering their lowly league position this campaign.
Hazard told Le Parisien: "It is difficult to say no to PSG, or to any of the teams capable of winning the Champions League.
"PSG are now in that category. And for me, winning the Champions League is my main aim."
Hazard attempted to backtrack after his PSG comments, pointing to his Chelsea contract that expires in 2020, but the timing of his comments will cause alarm with the Blues facing a big week in their season as Manchester City visit in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Asked about his future, he added: "I do not know, because there is always uncertainty in football. If we stick to the contract, I'll still be at Chelsea next season.
"Even if things are complicated this season, I am at Chelsea. I'm in a good group that can win trophies every season. For the moment, I'm not really thinking about [a move]."
Hazard scored his first goal of the season in the January 31 FA Cup win over MK Dons, when he returned from a groin injury.
He recently admitted he sent a message of apology to Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese was sacked as Chelsea boss in December.
