Eberl confirmed that the 26-year-old wants to leave Monchengladbach and will not be signing a new deal.

“Thorgan has informed us that he doesn’t want to extend his contract and that he wants to leave the club in the summer to take the next step,” Eberl told Sky Germany.

“I’ve heard this statement 15 times in the last 10 years as really great players have left us.

“That’s the way it is for us. We’ll have to see where his path will continue.

Hazard is much admired around Europe due to his performances for Borussia Monchengladbach

Liverpool had reportedly made a bid of more than £36million for the attacking midfielder and are willing to outbid Borussia Dortmund.

Hazard is understood to favour a move to Dortmund, but his current club would prefer to see him go to Liverpool.

“I don’t know whether it will be at BVB, who are constantly being mentioned, or at Atletico Madrid, Liverpool or another club,” he added.
