Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale could be on his way to Chelsea, according to the latest reports in the press.
Don Balon claims that Bale is now at the top of the Blues shopping list and that they will be making a move for the former Tottenham forward with the money they receive for Diego Costa.
It makes sense that Chelsea would be interested in signing the Welsh wizard, he is a world class player who could make an immediate impact with the West Londoners.
Bale has struggled to win over the Madrid fans and has never really settled in Spain and if the right offer is made then there is every chance that Real will at the very least consider allowing the player to leave, but the right offer has to be made for that to happen.
Man Utd also remains interested in signing the Welshman, however, Chelsea has now moved into pole position over their northern rivals.
A fee close to £100 million is thought to be enough to persuade the European champions to sell.
It should also be noted that his former club Tottenham still have the first option.
