Dani Ceballos reckons his Real Madrid team-mate and Chelsea target Gareth Bale will set the Premier League on fire if he returns to England, but is he needed? With the constant reports in the media all suggesting that Chelsea are ready to spend some serious money in the summer transfer window, there has been talk that the Blues are interested in BALE.
Despite being one of the biggest players at Madrid, Bale is widely expected to leave the Bernabeu at the end of the season in search of a new club, as Zinedine Zidane is looking to freshen up the squad.
Zidane is keen to bring in some fresh meat for next season, meaning that he will need to offload a number of players at Madrid that do not fit in his plans, with Bale and Ceballos just two names that do not seem to have futures with Madrid.
And with the reports that Bale is destined for a move to the Premier League. The on-loan Arsenal midfielder is convinced the Welshman is better suited to the Premier rather than life in LaLiga, where he is far from a favourite of boss Zinedine Zidane.
He told Spanish newspaper Marca: “The Premier League is a league that suits him quite well, but he’s an important player for Real Madrid. “Let’s not forget everything he has given the club. “Whoever does not trust him has to put on the Champions League finals. “He has given enough to the club.”
Bale is no longer the player he once wash, but he could still cost around £80 million to acquire and would demand a wage around the £500,000-a-week, which is well out the reach of many of the premier League clubs.
But if Chelsea feel that he will add something to the squad in the comings seasons, if he is worth the money, if he will bring some success to the club, then they should make a move.
But if not, they should look for a more long-term investment. Bale is not the answer to their problems, Chelsea fans would probably not welcome him and it would be a massive shock to see him arrive at the club.
