It is understood the 26-year-old is now back at Stamford bridge, in Chelsea’s care.
Hazard will miss Belgium’s friendly on Monday against the Czech Republic and their World Cup qualifier against Estonia on 9 June.
The extent of his injury has not been revealed but it has been reported he will miss the start of next season.
The Belgian Football Association had confirmed on Twitter that the playmaker twisted his ankle and subsequent scans revealed a fracture.
