Gareth Bale to Chelsea emerges as genuine possibility

Previous reports have indicated that Manchester United are going to wait until next summer before launching a bid for Gareth Bale, but it seems that they may get the chance to sign him sooner than expected.

Bale is more dispensable than fellow "BBC" members Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, and Real believe they will be able to shift the Welshman for around £90m, which is just above the £89m that United parted with last summer to sign Paul Pogba.

A report in the Metro says that Los Blancos are asking for £90million for Bale's services as they start to tout him around to Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.

But 12 months down the line the Wales global is no longer a guaranteed starter, with Isco replacing him in Zinedine Zidane's starting line-up towards the latter end of last season. The former Tottenham man is being considered for the Santiago Bernabeu exit as the club mull over signing Kylian Mbappe. There are also several instances last season in which he was taken off the field around the hour mark to make way for Isco.

Real are looking to free up cash to sign Mbappe in a stunning £161m, as Barcelona have become interested in entering a bidding war with their bitter rivals following the exit of Neymar to PSG in a world record £198m deal.

"While the winger's agent Jonathan Barnett has dismissed the rumours of his client's potential departure from the Spanish capital, Jose Mourinho would love to bring him to Old Trafford and Zinedine Zidane has conceded one of his big-name attackers could be on his way out before the transfer window closes". "It is clear Bale likes Madrid".

Mbappe, the 18-year-old forward, reportedly wants to leave Monaco and is expected to cost around £161 million (about $212 million), with Real joined by Manchester City in being linked to the French forward.
