Eden Hazard snubs Barcelona interest: He wants to stay at Chelsea - report
Eden Hazard has told Barcelona he's not interested in joining them

Spanish outlet Don Balon say the Chelsea forward's name immediately jumped to the top of the Catalan club's wishlist after selling Neymar.

The La Liga giants are on the prowl for replacements after losing their brilliant Brazilian to Paris St-Germain for £198m earlier this week.

They immediately sounded out the injured Hazard if he would be keen to come to the Nou Camp.

However, the Real Madrid target did not give them the response they were after.

Don Balon claim he let the know he was not interested.

The Belgian flyer is said to be excited about getting fit and returning to the Champions League with the Premier League holders.

Hazard is also concerned about becoming something of a bit-part player in Barcelona, rather than the star man like he is at Stamford Bridge.

It's bad news for Liverpool's hopes of keeping Philippe Coutinho who is also wanted in the Catalan capital and appears more receptive to a move.

Despite these reports, boss Antonio Conte claimed this morning that he couldn't guarantee Hazard would stay forever.

He said: Conte said: "I don't know what Eden would be worth.

"I expect him to play with Chelsea, it is not the right moment to lose a player.

"I have great consideration for this player because he is top quality but I repeat I am the coach and I can give my opinion but the final decision is always the club's."
