Sarri leads chase to sign 23-goal hitman as Zidane pushes Bale towards stunning Chelsea move
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has opened the door for Gareth Bale to make a move back to the Premier League in the summer, by offering the Welshman no assurances on his future.
Bale has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past 12 months as there is a lot of speculation that the hierarchy and fans are fed up with his lacklustre performances in a Real shirt, despite the fact he is one of the highest paid players in world football right now.
Now Zidane gave no assurances that Bale would be at the club next season.
‘We are going to play these 10 games and then we will see,’ he said on the Sky Sports website
‘I will not talk about next season, we have 10 games left. Gareth is an important member of the squad, we know what he has done here, especially in the Champions League finals.
‘Nobody can take away what he has done. We know he can bring a lot to the team and we will count on him.’
Meanwhile, We are leading Manchester United and Arsenal in the chase to sign Luka Jovic in the summer transfer window.
We ended month of speculation during the January transfer window and managed to secure a loan deal for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín, while also wrapping up a deal which saw Alvaro Morata depart for Atletico Madrid, as they needed to revamp the front-line.
But there is speculation that we are looking to sign a more long-term answer to their problems, as the Argentine is coming towards the back end of his career and Jovic has been linked with a move.
Recent reports have claimed we have already made a £39 million offer to sign the hitman, who has scored an impressive 23 goals already for Eintracht Frankfurt this season, but that has been swiftly rejected by the German side.
And now Spanish outlet Marca claim that while Barcelona and Real are keen on the 21-year-old, we are at the front of the queue among Jovic’s English suitors, but Eintracht will demand a monster fee for Jovic should they decide to sell this summer with some reports claiming the German side have set a £67million asking price.[the_ad id=”164″]
