Renowned Journalist Gives Update About Real Madrid Star Targeted By Chelsea: What Does This Mean For Sarri?

Renowned Spanish journalist Guillem Balague recently gave an update about Gareth Bale’s situation at Santiago Bernabeu. The Welsh international has struggled to cope up with injuries and expectations since Cristiano Ronaldo departed from the club and Bale could be sold in the upcoming transfer market. However, the reports say that Bale would like to stick with the Galacticos.

Balague said (Via The Express), ”So, to get the best out of Bale, Zidane is going to have to put an arm around his shoulder. But the first option will be to try and sell him. But it won’t be easy because he earns about 12million euros net and Real Madrid will probably want around 75million euros to sell. 

If Chelsea had the possibility of signing Bale it would be a swap with [Eden] Hazard and I expect all that to appear in the equation. But I feel Bale doesn’t want to leave. Bale would like to stay at Real Madrid.”

The Blues are currently unsure about their transfer situation as they have been handed a two-window transfer ban. Therefore they could miss out on signing Bale if the ban isn’t overturned after Chelsea’s appeal. Chelsea would be glad to get someone like Bale in return of Hazard as it feels to us that they are likely to lose him. The Belgian winger has been stalling contract talks for quite some time now, and Hazard has given enough indications in the past that he wants to move to Real Madrid and so Chelsea are going to face a tricky summer up ahead.

Bale would be a decent addition at Stamford Bridge, but the concern regarding his fitness and injury issue would continue. Even though Bale has played a significant role in Los Blancos lineup in their various triumphs, the Welshman has never really gone on to establish himself in the eleven.

Chelsea are going to find themselves in a tough situation if Hazard demands to leave and their ban isn’t overturned. That would not give them a chance to look for Hazard’s replacement, and they might have to look internally to solve such a big void.

All in all, the Blues are on a sticky ground over here as Bale doesn’t want to leave Real Madrid in the first place and Hazard could be keen on a departure. If the Pensioners don’t manage to secure Champions League football, that could be curtains for them from keeping Hazard.
