Chelsea target Gareth Bale has had a £131m price tag placed on him by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, reports Telemadrid.
With constant speculation in the media that star man Eden Hazard will be leaving the club at the end of the season for a move to the Bernabeu, there has been some speculation in the media about whom we could acquire to try and help fill the void which will be left by the Belgian.[the_ad id=”164″]
And one player that could make a shock move to Stamford is that of Bale, who has been a transfer target for a few transfer windows now and is heavily tipped to leave the Spanish giants in the next few windows.
The Welshman has not lived upto expectations at the Bernabeu and has really struggled since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus during the summer window.
And according to recent reports, Madrid are willing to let the Welshman leave the club in the summer transfer window if the £131 million price tag is met by us, or any other chasing club that are interested in trying to secure a summer deal.
Meanwhile, John Terry feels boss Maurizio Sarri is in a “tough place” after the incident with young Spanish stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
With the game goalless and deep into extra-time, Kepa seemed to be struggling with cramp and Sarri was prepared to bring on penalty specialist Willy Caballero to come on for the final moments and the approaching penalty shootout.[the_ad id=”164″]
However, the young Spaniard refused to come off and seemed to recover from the issue, despite the fact that Sarri was keen to bring on the experienced stopper. and Terry admits this latest situation leaves Sarri in a difficult situation.
“It leaves Sarri in a tough place – I’m surprised he didn’t force him to come off,” he told Sky Sports.
“It will be interesting how it pans out in the next 24 hours for the club.
“It’s not the end of it – it’s a cloud over a really good Chelsea performance especially with what’s happened of late, as the results and performances haven’t been good enough.
It’s disappointing – let’s see what happens now.”
He added: “If I was in there [dressing room] I’d be expecting the manager to come in and deal with it instantly.”
