Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we are awaiting to discover the repercussions from the expected transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
Today’s Marca declares that Madrid will offload both Angel Di Maria and Fabio Coentrao after arrival of the Welsh international at Bernabeu in what will be a world record breaking transfer fee.
Argentine winger Di Maria is being chased by a whole host of clubs across Europe after Madrid made it clear that the former Benfica man was available for sale this summer with Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United all after the 25-year-old’d signature.
While new manager Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants to keep Di Maria at the club, he is at odds with officials who have decided to sell him as well as the Portuguese left back as they try to recoup some of the massive fee paid for Bale.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has targeted the skillful winger to add more creativity to their side and reports suggest that the Gunners have opened initial talks with Madrid over a possible move to the Emirates Stadium.
However they could face competition from Manchester United manager David Moyes who is a known admirer of Di Maria while PSG boss Laurent Blanc fancies taking him to Paris as part of his mega-bucks side.
Gareth Bale is expected to be officially confirmed as a Madrid player early next week and that could led to multiple transfers out of the Bernabeu.
Who will take advantage of Bale’s arrival at Madrid by snapping up the unwanted talent? Let us know your thoughts below.
