Chelsea set to orchestrate Bale's Premier League return from Madrid

The negotiations between Real Madrid and Monaco for the transfer of Kylian Mbappe have slowed down during the last week although Los Blancos remain optimistic a deal can be done, however Gareth Bale will have to leave before the Frenchman can arrive as Zinedine Zidane doesn't believe Mbappe and the entire BBC are compatible.

He is a classy winger adept at playing anywhere across the front three, and is known for his pace, finishing and set piece prowess.

Ronald Koeman had wanted Gunners forward Olivier Giroud, but with the France international seemingly uninterested in moving to Merseyside, Welbeck could become the focus.

"There's always a time and a place to come back but I don't think it should be now". Bale, who was 24 when he moved to Spain, has scored 54 goals in 100 La Liga appearances-an impressive rate, for sure-but injuries continue to plague the Welshman, as has the emergence of Isco.

Chelsea have emerged as genuine contenders to sign Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale, according to the Express.

And according to the Express' Jack Wilson, preliminary talks with both Man United and Chelsea have been held over a possible move for Bale, valued at around £90m by the Spanish side.

The amount corresponds with the Neymar clause that both Real and PSG valued paying the previous summer (192m euros). Toward the end of last season, Isco played extremely well in Bale's absence and started over him in the Champions League final, which was played in Bale's native Wales.

"I never felt a desire from him to leave, so why lose time and energy on that?" A deal that would see the Spaniard join Madrid this summer is highly unlikely as Jose Mourinho made it clear in a pre-season press conference that the goalkeeper would be staying at Old Trafford for at least another season.

With Kylian Mbappe likely joining Los Merengues, it is not a secret that Madrid would have to sell one of their attackers to make the move happen.

'We need more players, not top level like Neymar but more players to improve our squad and our quality'.
