Report reveals Chelsea on brink of shock £51m deal for Gareth Bale

Date published: Wednesday 8th January 2020 5:17

Gareth Bale is reportedly on the brink of a sensational return to the Premier League as Chelsea eye a £51million move for the Real Madrid star.

The Blues have recently seen their transfer embargo lifted by CAS – and speculation has been rife about the type of names Chelsea will move for.

And Lampard recently admitted, despite still occupying that all-important final Champions League place, that Chelsea must try to bring in a creative winger at the top of the pitch.

“I think it will be a bit fluid and discussions will be ongoing from now about where we can strengthen,” Lampard said last month.

“Of course, with Eden leaving we lost a lot of goals and creation in that particular position.

“Today we’ve missed some chances and we can look at strengthening and pushing and getting more competition in those areas.”



Jadon Sancho has been consistently linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in a €100m deal, but the England’s winger’s enormous package means they’re not serious suitors with a summer move to Manchester United looking the most likely option for the teenager.

But Chelsea are ready to bring in another winger with a move for former Tottenham man Bale said to be progressing nicely, according to Don Balon.
