Chelsea are reportedly considering signing Gareth Bale should the Wales international leave Real Madrid (via The Daily Star).
It’s the sort of story which will make for good reading for Chelsea fans as the Blues continue their long-term planning.
Luis Enrique has been closely linked with the club’s management position and it seems that the club wants to sign a new star player to go along with Enrique.
Reports in Spain suggest that the Blues are the unlikely favourites to sign Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale.
“Luis Enrique wants Bale at Chelsea next season,” Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda told El Chiringuito TV.
The Wales international has been in Spain since his 2013 move from Tottenham Hotspur and has won three Champions League titles at the club.
However, there are growing reports that Madrid will undergo some major changes in their squad with some big name players heading for the exit door.
It remains to be seen how much truth is in these reports. Gareth Bale is obviously a fantastic player and, but for injuries, would truly be considered amongst the world’s elite right now. He’d be a brilliant signing at the right price.
