Chelsea are reportedly set to battle for the signature of Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale.
Bale’s stock has fallen during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, there’s no getting around that. However, after scoring a match-winning brace in the Champions League final, with the help of Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, he proved he still possesses the star quality that convinced Real to sign him in the first place.
The Welshman sent what appeared to be a come-and-get-me plea following the game, insisting that he needs to be playing regularly and that he was extremely disappointed not to start the game.
Chelsea face the possibility of losing either, or both, of Eden Hazard and Willian this summer to Real Madrid and Manchester United respectively. Bale could be the man to step-in and provide further quality in attack.
According to the Express, we will provide Manchester United with competition in the race to sign Bale. He’s thought to be valued in the region of £80M, with Real keen to reinvest that money into Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.
