The future of Hazard was thrown into doubt at the end of last season when manager Jose Mourinho publicly criticised him for his costly error in the Champions League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid.

But since that public outburst from Mourinho, Hazard has continuously insisted he would remain at Chelsea next season despite huge interest from big-spending French champions PSG.

And despite his stance, Barcelona, according to reports in Spain, will move for the Belgium international if their proposed deal for Suarez falters.

Starsport exclusively revealed at the weekend that the Spanish giants will offer £56m plus Alexis Sanchez in an attempt to prise the Uruguay hitman away from Liverpool.
