Newly-crowned English champions, Chelsea have offered Spanish champions, Real Madrid €100m for Welsh superstar, Gareth Bale ahead of the summer transfer market according to Don Balon.
Bale was not at his best last season due to different injury issues that hampered his performances, though he was part of the team that won the La Liga, there tend to be questions over his future at the Bernabeu due to his inconsistent form.
With Real Madrid looking at the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Bale could find himself expendable to Zinedine Zidane.
Bale, who was once the most expensive player in football history when Madrid shelled out £85m to sign him from Tottenham, has never really been taken in by the Madrid fans in the way that Cristiano Ronaldo has.
Hazard is one of Zidane’s top targets at Madrid but getting Bale in return wouldn’t be the worst outcome.
Bale will be up against Juventus in the Champions League finals in his homeland Wales, on June 3.
He will have another opportunity to impress the home fans and Bernabeu faithful when Real Madrid seek to win back to back Champions League which no team has done in the competition’s current format.
