Eden Hazard is fully committed to regaining his very best form for Chelsea next season, according to his brother Kylian.
Hazard endured a disappointing 2015/16 season, failing to hit the heights of the previous campaign when he helped Chelsea to the Premier League and the Capital One Cup.
He dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Paris Saint-Germian prior to joining up with Belgium for Euro 2016 and also confirmed his desire to remain at Chelsea.
"He will stay at Chelsea, he is happy at Chelsea," Kylian told Goal. "He loves London. It is good for him there and he says the facilities are great.

"It is one of the biggest teams in the world. He will be special again for them next year."
Kylian is also predicting a fruitful attacking partnership between his brother and new Chelsea signing Michy Batshuayi.
Batshuayi, who was also part of the Belgium squad at Euro 2016, completed a £33.2m move to Stamford Bridge prior to their quarter-final defeat to Wales.
"Chelsea is a great team for Belgians at the minute." he added. "You see it with another Belgian arriving in Michy Batshuayi as well as Thibaut Courtois.
"Batshuayi will do really well at Chelsea and he can help Diego Costa, including times like last season when he was injured, and score goals. He will work with Eden well just as they did for Belgium.
"They know each other now and we have talked about Michy's move. We think he will be really good."
