"And if it isn't Hazard, who else is it going to be?" a source close to Barcelona told Sport upon being asked about who their marquee signing would be this summer.
Barca had set aside €100m to sign Antoine Griezmann from rivals Atletico Madrid earlier this summer, but the balance remains after the Frenchman opted to stay in the capital.

The Blaugrana have also been made aware of an agreement between Maurizio Sarri and owner Roman Abramovich ahead of the Italian manager's rumoured move to Stamford Bridge, where he will succeed their title-winning coach Antonio Conte.
