Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard is unlikely to play again this season as he is reportedly set to undergo surgery in the United States on Thursday.

Eden Hazard will reportedly undergo surgery on his ankle later this week and is likely miss the remainder of Real Madrid's campaign.

The Belgium international has endured an injury-plagued debut season at the Bernabeu after joining from Chelsea in a deal worth up to £150m last June.

Hazard returned from a three-month layoff on February 16 but suffered a fracture to his ankle against Levante in his second game back.

According to The Sun, the 29-year-old will now fly out to the United States and is expected to go under the knife on Thursday.

Returning before the end of the club season is unlikely, but Hazard could still be in contention to represent Belgium at Euro 2020 this summer.
