Chelsea have reportedly been handed a boost in their bid to secure the £80million transfer of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale,
according to the Daily Mail website. The Blues have been monitoring the Welshman closely over the last few months as there have been talks that he is not happy at the Spaniards.
Bale, 25, has become isolated in the Madrid dressing room due to his failure to get over the language barrier.
While coach Carlo Ancelotti and star man Cristiano Ronaldo are able to speak English, the squad generally communicate in Spanish.
