Thierry Hazard, who looks after the interests of both Eden and his younger brother Thorgan who is also at Chelsea, was quizzed about the future of his eldest son amid reports that Paris Saint-Germain were lining up a deal.
Reports claim that PSG's owners have met Hazard's representatives and are looking to pay €75million for the Belgian.
Hazard senior refused to talk about PSG, but insisted that nothing will be discussed about Eden until after he has finished playing in the World Cup finals in Brazil with Belgium.
"I read transfer news on Eden every day, but at this moment nothing has happened," Thierry Hazard told Sudpresse.
"Eden had asked me one thing, that he can focus on the World Cup.
"There will be no transfer news during the World Cup."
Hazard senior also spoke about his younger son Thorgan, who is due back at Chelsea this summer.
The 21-year-old - also an attacking midfielder - has impressed back on loan in Belgium over the past two seasons, but is now looking to feature in one of Europe's top leagues next term, with the Bundesliga looking likely.
"I've had a meeting with Jose Mourinho on Thorgan's future. He wants to loan him again, but to a higher-rated league," he said.
"Thorgan has to get guarantees on playing time, because it's important he keeps on making progress. The German league attracts him. The best case is that he starts pre-season with his new team."
