Lille will hold talks with Manchester City and Manchester United next week before the future of Eden Hazard can be decided.

The Belgian winger is set to leave the Stade Lille Metropole this summer, and has already confirmed that a transfer to one of the Manchester clubs beckoned.

Hazard also hinted that he expects to be playing in the blue of City but, according to BBC Sport, the 21-year-old could yet move to Old Trafford over the Etihad Stadium.

Lille, it is claimed, are unwilling to enter into any negotiations until after their final game of the season against Nancy on Sunday, and neither City nor United have made a formal approach.

But last season's French champions will reportedly talk to City and United next week in an attempt to thrash out a deal for the in-demand forward.

Both Roberto Mancini and Sir Alex Ferguson have spoken in admiration of Hazard in the past and, last month, the latter visited Lille to watch the youngster in action for his club.
