Gareth Bale has declined a staggering £150m move from Real Madrid to Chelsea. Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea were linked to Gareth Bale along with Manchester United to gun for the Real Madrid’s star’s signature.
According to reports in Spain, Bale wants to carry on with Real Madird and will fight for his place in the squad. Still, Jose Moruinho is expected to pursue his target with both Mohammed Salah and Andre Schurrle heading towards exit. The ‘Special One’ could up his offer of £90m for Bale’s services, whilst also paying out a staggering £60m-worth of wages on a long-term deal.
Gareth Bale meanwhile, is no longer a guaranteed start up player for Real Madrid, as Isco has successfully replaced the Welshman. Isco is a crowd and fan favourite among the Los Blancos supporters.
The former Spurs man who made a move to Real Madrid, has also been linked to Manchester United.
With Chelsea out of the scene and Jose Mourinho tasting defeat, though still adamant about his pursuit, Manchester United probably have a green light in their pursuits.
Although Bale wants to stay and fight for his place at Real Madrid, there can be no doubt that if Manchester United come calling, Bale could back his bags for England.
The Welshman has already enjoyed successful spells in England with Tottenham Hotspur. Bale, who was evolved from a left back into a left winger is known for his excellent athleticism, great crossing abilities and a hammer of a left foot.
Meanwhile, with Manchester United struggling at seventh, van Gaal could now be tempted to mount an assault for the services of Gareth Bale. If Manchester United sign Bale, then United could very well reequip their squad with heavy armory and look for higher and better grounds, that is the Champions League places.
Although Chelsea do not have any urgent need of Bale’s services, it would be more than safe to acquire a player of his caliber and talent. With the Blue’s pursuit of Bale receiving roadblocks, Chelsea could very well turn to other transfer targets like Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus.
Chelsea unlike United, sit comfortably top of the Premier League with 29 points. The Blues have already impressed with their season so far and would be looking for another win when they entertain West Bromich Albion after the International break.
With Gareth Bale, almost putting an end to the Chelsea rumors, the Real Madrid starlet could have his mind set on two options, either staying with the Los Blancos and fighting for his place or considering a move to Manchester United.
A move to Manchester United looks highly highly unlikely, as the Welshman would have to sacrifice his Champions League taste to join the English side.
