Could Chelsea make a stunning move to sign Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale this summer? It is not completely out of the question.
According to The Sun, Real Madrid need to cash-in on one of their headline acts in order to fund a move to sign AS Monaco prodigy Kylian Mbappe.
One of the names mentioned by The Sun as a potential sale is Alvaro Morata, who the tabloid note Chelsea have shown an interest in. The Spaniard is believed to be valued in the region of £70M.
Morata is not the only Los Blancos star that Chelsea are keen on, however. The Sun believe that Chelsea have also sniffed around former Tottenham winger Gareth Bale in the past, and the Welshman is also thought to be on the list of players who could be sacrificed this summer.
As unlikely as it may seem, Chelsea signing Bale would send a statement to the entire footballing world.
