Newcastle United and West Ham United, among others, have been mooted as potential destinations for the playmaker. 

Not to mention Lille who appear to have made a play for the 30-year-old, with Olivier Letang​ talking up a switch for their former star man. 

Asked about resigning Hazard, Letang​ told L'Equipe: "A return of Hazard to Lille? It’s not impossible."

He added: "I’ll go to Spain if necessary. It could appear something impossible.

"Evidently, Hazard is an incredible player with a lot of quality. Now, he is a Real Madrid player and he is under contract with Real Madrid."​

Hazard began his professional career with the French side and spent two years developing in the club's local sport schools. 

He had a five-year spell with the first-team, making a name for himself in the 2011/12 season where he scored 20 league goals. 

Chelsea then came calling and snapped him up, with Hazard going onto enjoy a legendary career at Stamford Bridge. 

He enjoyed a trophy laden seven-year spell, winning two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two Europa League titles. 

The Belgium international signed for Real in an initial £89 million deal, but has failed to make an impression at the club. 

​He's been blighted with injuries, scoring just five goals in 55 games. 

Could a move back to France resurrect his career?
