Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is destined to move to Barcelona and replace Lionel Messi, according to Lille president Michel Seydoux.
The Belgian international completed a £32m move from the French outfit to Stamford Bridge in the summer after being linked with Europe's elite.
However, Seydoux believes that the 21-year-old will eventually leave the Blues and end up starring at the Nou Camp.
"I made a bet with people," Seydoux told L'Equipe.
"The bet was that Hazard would play for Barcelona. He is a phenomenon and one day he will replace Lionel Messi in the Barca team.
"I am convinced of that."
