Metro have Chelsea fans looking up in utter shock here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the Blues are set to make a MASSIVE bid for Gareth Bale.
The Real Madrid star has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks with the Premier League side reportedly willing to match the asking price Real Madrid want.
However, now a massive spanner could be placed in the works with Jose Mourinho also eyeing the Welsh international superstar.
As one of our punters notes over a huge burger and pint with our landlord, Bale has of course proven himself in the top flight of English football and could well be the final piece in Chelsea’s puzzle – if it didn’t look complete enough already!
Mourinho would be willing to sell before he sanctioned a deal for Bale and the futures of both Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah are looking increasingly unstable with that in mind.
This is not to mention the fact that the duo would get even less playing time than they currently do, should Mourinho bring in Bale.
Chelsea fans. Would you pay £90 million for Gareth Bale or is that far too much money for the former Tottenham player? Let us know your thoughts below.
