Speaking to Telefoot, Chelsea star Eden Hazard said he is happy in London at the moment, but also that anything in football could happen and, most of all, that he will change club only when he will decide to do so himself.

I still have two-and-a-half years left on my contract”. Hazard said. “I am very well there. The fans love me, my family enjoys life over here. We will see. In football anything can happen. But in football nothing can happen too. Every year they talk about Real or PSG. And when I want to change clubs, I will. But at the moment I’m good where I am.”

We reported yesterday that Chelsea could face only a quartet of the winners from their Champions League groups, as no side can play another from the same country in the Round of 16. Anyway, Liverpool joined Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Manchester United in the 1st pot for the knockout stage after beating 7-0 Spartak Moscow last night, leaving Chelsea a two-out-of-three chance to play against either Paris Saint-Germain or Barcelona in the next round.

Also Besiktas are included in the possible trio, while La Liga giants Sevilla can’t face the Premier League champions as they are now left in Pot Two for Monday’s draw in Nyon. The Turkish side were stunning in winning their Group and get rid of their opponents Leipzig, Porto and last year’s semi-finalists Monaco, who remain crashed out of the Champions League after getting the 4th place.

Something has changed, all we know for sure is that Chelsea could face a terrific opponent so early in their Champions League return.

Chelsea could face PSG, Barcelona, Sevilla or Besiktas in the round of 16 of Champions League after failing to get the 1st place in Group C last night.

The Premier League champions cannot play against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, then remains a quartet of teams available. Moreover, should Liverpool win Group E tonight, Antonio Conte‘s men can only face Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas in the last 16. Not the best prospect ahead of next round.

Paris Saint-Germain star Thomas Meunier has revealed Chelsea placed a deadline day transfer offer to land him to Stamford Bridge, before setting their sights on former Torino right-back Davide Zappacosta, who joined the Blues on a £25m move.

“On the last day of the transfer period, they made an offer to Paris but I know it was no, – Meunier said – From the club, they didn’t want to sell me – because we have two right-backs, with Dani Alves and me, it was difficult to sell one.”

Then he added: “I didn’t really think about it [a move to Chelsea] because they called me in they told me ‘you will not move at all so don’t think about Chelsea or another club, you will not move so you stay in Paris and we are counting on your for the rest of the season’.”

Meunier is a regular starter in Belgium national team, alongside with Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi.

Chelsea have joined Paris Saint Germain, Inter and Manchester United in the race for Serie A golden boy Pietro Pellegri.

The Genoa forward, only 16, is one of the new Serie A sensations, having scored already 3 goals in only 7 games with the first team ( and not always as a starter).

Genoa outlet Il Secolo XIX, claims the competition has got even stiffer as PSG have entered the race for Pellegri in the last days.

The French champions are reportedly scouting the Italian and they are preparing to swoop, even if Inter was ready to place a bid for him and another Genoa’s young talent, Eddy Salcedo ( who turned 16 last week).

Genoa, however, are hoping that Pellegri will opt to stay for at least two more years at the Rossoblu.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admitted his team will struggle to retain the Premier League title this year.

Having fell down to 4th position in the table with 13 points,  behind leading duo Manchester City and Manchester United after Saturday’s defeat against Pep Guardiola‘s side, the Italian manager claimed he had an easier job when managing Juventus to hold the title in Serie A:

“It is very difficult for every team in this league. To defend, it is very difficult to win two titles in a row.

”We won the title with Juventus and I was expecting a really strong challenge from AC Milan, but instead they sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to Paris St Germain, so they became weaker. It wasn’t simple second time, but it was easier.

“Here, from last season to this season, you have big teams and now they are bigger… And now after I think a great transfer market, they have improved a lot. It’s not simple to play this league.”
