Zinedine Zidane has opened the door for Chelsea to secure a deal for Gareth Bale after admitting ‘he does not fit’ my Real Madrid team.
Despite the fact that Chelsea are still unable to buy any players during this transfer window, the Blues are challenging the ruling and are hoping to secure a number of top signings to help get Maurizio Sarri’s side challenging for the League title.
And with all the reports in the media which are suggesting that star man Eden Hazard is leaving the club to sign for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the Blues are desperate to find an adequate replacement that could fill the goals that the Belgian Creates and scores.
And that has led to speculation that Chelsea could try and acquire the services of unhappy Bale, who has been linked with a move away from the bernabeu all season, as the 29-year-old has struggled to hold down a starting place in the Real side since Zidane returned in March and the manager has consistently refused to offer assurances over his future.
Bale has won four Champions Leagues, La Liga and the Copa del Rey during his six years at Real but is all set for an exit after Zidane admitted that he does not suit the team anymore.
Zidane said: “I don’t know if it’s the last game or not. I don’t know what’s going to happen.
“I’m sorry he didn’t get to play, but no-one knows what will happen. If I think a player doesn’t fit in the team I have to do what I think works best.
“No one can change what Bale has done for the team, but as a coach I have to live in the present. I have counted on other players more in recent weeks.
“I make these decisions when it is right to do so, and I must act in the best interests of the team at all times.”
Bale is a superstar and is not the only man to have problems at Madrid, but the Welshman is taking all the blame for the fact Madrid have faired so miserably in the League and Champions League this season.
The Premier League would love Bale back and the fact that he could be the idea replacement for Hazard means, Chelsea should complete this deal if they are able too.
