Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists Eden Hazard will be staying next season.
The Belgian will hope to shine on the global stage this summer in Brazil to cap a campaign that on an individual level did not often waver from exceptional.
He has been so impressive this year that the likes of PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been linked with a move.
However, Mourinho has played down speculation by admitting he wants him to stay.
Mourinho told chelseafc.com: “Eden has had a big evolution in his game and a big evolution in his personality.
“He had a high that lasted for a long time – many, many months. He couldn’t finish on a high because he was injured and in the most important moment of the season for the second leg against Paris, for the first leg against Atletico – he was not there.
“Against Atletico in the second leg he was there but not in top condition.
“He wasn’t there for the last few matches of the Premier League because of his injury, but he was clearly a player with a big evolution and hopefully he will be even better next season.”
