Real Madrid and Wales striker Gareth Bale has been given the go-ahead to sign a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea as part of a possible swap deal which will see Chelsea forward Eden Hazard switch to the Spanish giants in the summer
The Welshman seems to have returned to form but his injury problems could be responsible for Madrid’s decision to let go of the proven goalscorer.
According to Don Balon, Gareth Bale is set to return back to the Premier League where he broke into the limelight while playing for Tottenham before he moved to the La Liga Champions in 2013.

Should Chelsea accept to partway with Eden Hazard in the summer, Conte will surely need to add another playmaker to his team so as to serve as the Belgian replacement.
Though Gareth Bale is widely known as a striker or a winger, his ability to play as an attacking midfielder is never in doubt and he could turn out to be the perfect player whose contribution has been missing in the Blues’ collective display throughout the season.
Don Balon also suggest that the 28-year-old striker is set to end his partnership with the Los Blancos by the end of the season.
Gareth Bale would have been a better striker than what he is presently but his growth in the game is being marred by his recurring injury which kept him out of action for most of the seasons he has spent in the Spanish league.
Liverpool and Manchester United both made an official offer to Real Madrid over the possibility of signing him last winter but none of them was able to complete a move for the Welshman.
