Lille have reacted badly to reports claiming Chelsea could have tapped up their young star Eden Hazard.
A number of top European clubs are known to be monitoring the 20 year-old midfielder, but Lille director general Frederic Paquet claims none have contacted the club itself about the player.
“If Chelsea have contacted Eden, we are officially offended,” he told the French press. “This is not the way things are done.
“It's been three years since Eden Hazard started interesting in the major European clubs. But nobody is selling.
"We are presently discussing with Eden how to go about conducting a long joint project. But maybe our message was not strong enough.
"We want to clarify it once again.”
