Chelsea receive boost to sign highly-rated 29-year-old winger

Real Madrid are barrelling down a road of oblivion. Since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club, the Spanish giants have spurned opportunity to reaffirm themselves as arguably the best club in Europe.

They have crashed out of the Champions League after losing to Ajax at home, and are sitting third on the La Liga table.

The smell of a solid comeback remains distant at the Santiago Bernabeu. President Florentino Pérez has reportedly tried everything. He’s changed manager twice, but it appears the only antidote for their misery is a massive summer overhaul.

It is understood the first on the cards is Gareth Bale. The 29-year-old Welshman has failed woefully to step up to the plate since Ronaldo left the club over a feud with president Perez.

Bale is struggling to get balls behind the goal line–a pounding worry for Perez.

While his sale is already looming, Chelsea are waiting in the wings to sign him up. Reports say Chelsea have been credited with an interest in the former Manchester United target who is rumoured to make a Premier League return back to north Londoners Tottenham.

Nonetheless, what’s more shocking is Arsenal’s rumoured linked with the 86 million pounds winger. Arsenal hero Robert Pires has urged Gunners to enter the race for the Wales international.

Bale’s declining form at Real is quite appalling since overcoming injury issues from last season. It is only a matter of weeks before he is dropped.
