Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea are set to do-battle over Gareth Bale after Real Madrid made it clear they’d sell the attacker for £85m, according to a report in the Daily Star.
Bale was a product of the Southampton youth academy before making his name at Tottenham but he’s really developed in to one of the best attackers in the world since joining Madrid in 2013.
The 28-year-old has provided 70 goals and 55 assists in his 159 appearances for the Spanish giants to help them win three Champions League’s and a La Liga title over the past four years.
However, the Welshman’s future at the Bernabeu has been cast in doubt in recent months as reports are intensifying that Madrid are ready to cash-in due to his recent injury problems.
Bale endured a frustrating campaign last season with various injuries restricting him to just 26 starts and he’s only made 9 appearances so far this term having been sidelined by a calf injury.
The winger isn’t expected back from his latest setback until the New Year and with his place under pressure from the likes of Isco and Marco Asensio, it seems Madrid are ready to sell next summer.
The Daily Star is citing a report from Mirror that claims the La Liga giants have made it clear to potential suitors they are willing to do business for Bale if £85m is put on the table.
That news has alerted teams here in the Premier League with the newspaper suggesting that Man Utd, Spurs and Chelsea have all expressed their interest in bringing Bale back to England.
United have long been linked with a move for the Welsh international so it’s no surprise to see them once again touted as a potential buyer as Jose Mourinho looks to try and build a side capable of competing with Man City.
Bale spent six happy years at Tottenham and with Mauricio Pochettino forming a title-challenging squad in north London, the attacker could be tempted by the prospect of moving back to White Hart Lane.
I wouldn’t discount Chelsea from the race either as they have the financial power to land a player of Bale’s caliber and Roman Abramovich may need to sign a world class talent in order to keep hold of manager Antonio Conte.
However, with the likes of David De Gea, Harry Kane and Eden Hazard all strongly linked with Madrid, the Spaniard’s could use their interest in Bale to try and secure a deal for one of the three aforementioned players.
