Genuine progress on a deal to sign Hazard, 27, is unlikely to occur until next week at the earliest after Belgium finish their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign-they still have a third-place play-off against England on Saturday. Hazard told beIN SPORTS.
Chelsea have been keen to tie him down to a new deal, but the Belgian has so far refused to sign a new contract, with the spectre of Real Madrid always looming in the background.
However, given his calibre, Hazard may well be eager to make a move to a UEFA Champions League club that is likely to win major silverware.More news: Sonos Adds AirPlay 2 Support to Certain Speaker Models
Real Madrid are still interested in Hazard and with Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus, Los Blancos are said to have identified the Belgian as their top target.
The report claims that Hazard would not demand an "astronomical" wage from Barca and his salary would be topped up by performance-related bonuses.
