Spanish journalist Alvaro Montero has provided this update on Gareth Bale future at Real Madrid, with Chelsea linked
Now that star man Eden Hazard has officially left the club and signed for Madrid in a deal worth around £115 million, we are lining up a number of possible transfer replacements if their transfer ban gets overturned.
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 Zinedine Zidane admitted that he does not suit the team anymore.
And now Spanish Journalist Morata has given both clubs an update on the future of the Welshman.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “The truth is that Zinedine Zidane doesn’t count on him. He wants him to leave. But the problem in the last weeks, when you ask Real Madrid people they realise, and they recognise that here haven’t been offers.
“We have to remember that two years ago there were some offers. Jose Mourinho wanted him to play at Manchester United. Everybody knows that they talked in the United States during the International Champions Challenge Cup, but right now today there are no offers in the Bernabeu stadium for Gareth Bale.
“So, it will be a huge problem if he starts pre-season with Real Madrid in Montreal in Canada and Gareth Bale continues on Real Madrid’s staff.”
Meanwhile, We should be looking to appoint Ajax boss Erik ten Hag once Maurizio Sarri leaves for Juventus, according to European football expert Julien Laurens,
Ten Hag has become one of the most sought after young managers in the game over the course of the last 12 months after turning Ajax back into one of the most attractive sides to watch in Europe, especially during their amazing run in the Champions League.
The 49-year-old has been the mastermind behind Ajax’s remarkable success this season and gained plaudits for steering the club past the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid to reach their first Champions League semi-finals for 22-years.
Now Laurens has insisted he has all the attributes needed to be a success at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s a huge summer for Chelsea,” Laurens said on talkSPORT.
“It’s a key time to decide what direction they go in this summer and with who they go into that new direction with.
“I think Sarri will go to Juventus, so the new manager will be massive. They can’t get this one wrong.
“Either they bring through their young players or they hope for the best and the transfer ban gets frozen so they can a bit of money.
“They could try to go for Erik ten Hag at Ajax. His English is perfect and Chelsea have got this amazing academy, with players like Mason Mount and others.
“You can always convince someone to leave, wherever they are.”
