Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc has given up hopes of signing Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard, at least this summer, after the latter's declaration of contentment at Stamford Bridge.

"For the moment, that's not the case. We're going to bring in some players, one or two, of great quality," the PSG boss told ESPN.

"Hazard is a top player, but I think Chelsea want to keep him. A lot of players are going to be mentioned, but we have already got our priority, David Luiz."

The Belgian international, who assisted one of the two goals in Belgium's 2-1 triumph over Algeria last Tuesday, is in talks with the Blues to extend his stay at west London.

"I am staying at Chelsea 100 per cent sure. Of course in football you never know but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there, and I am in discussions with Chelsea for a new contract." Hazard was quoted by Le Derniere Heure.
