Belgium international Eden Hazard has hinted he could remain at Lille.
Hazard has enjoyed an impressive season at Lille, helping the club win the Ligue 1 title and also being named the division's Player of the Year.
The 20-year-old attack-minded player has been linked with several European sides, including Tottenham and Liverpool, sparking suggestions of a big-money summer transfer.
However, Hazard has stated: "I do not know if I will go. I have a contract until 2015.
"There is the big stadium coming next season, and there is also the Champions League, the top club competition in the world.
"It is a fantastic adventure to be part of that, I hope one day I will play in a very big team, but for the moment I am looking to win against Rennes next week and celebrate our title."
Sow & Cabaye
Meanwhile, Hazard's team-mate Moussa Sow has confirmed he will be staying at Lille after expressing his willingness to extend his current contract.
However, Yohan Cabaye's future is uncertain after the midfielder claimed he has had his head turned by other clubs.
He told L'Equipe: "I have received a proposition of a contract extension. I have also had offers from elsewhere. I will soon talk with my agents.
"There are a lot of advantages in staying. We have a wonderful group, and there is the Champions League too.
"But after a double, maybe it is the right moment to discover something new. Anyway, I won't rush."
