Lille general director Frederic Paquet is resigned to losing prized asset Eden Hazard at the end of the season.
Hazard, 21, has been regularly linked with a move away from the Stade Metropole over the past 12 months, with a host of European giants thought to be keen on acquring him.
It seems certain Hazard is heading for the LOSC exit and Pacquet admits it is diffuclt to see Hazard staying at the reigning French champions.
"Eden will leave at the end of the season, that is almost a certainty," Paquet told Orange Sport.
Real Madrd, Manchester United and Arsenal have been among the clubs tipped to swoop for the talented Belgium international, while the player himself indicated recently that he'd consider a switch to Lille's Ligue 1 rivals PSG.
