Premier League outfit Chelsea are ready to spring a surprise on the footballing world with the transfer of Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale according to the widespread report from the Spanish media.
It was revealed that Chelsea see Welsh international Gareth Bale as the man to replace the goals and creativity lost with the sale of Eden Hazard last summer.
According to the specific report via Don Balon, Chelsea are closing in on a €60m (£51m) deal for Bale.
Real Madrid fans have not completely embraced Gareth Bale at the club despite the fact that he has been at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu for seven years since his then world-record transfer from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013.

He has won four Champions League titles during his time at Real Madrid including the 2018 edition which he impacted as a substitute.
Gareth Bale scored two goals for Real Madrid to win the 2018 Champions League title for his team via a 3-1 win over Liverpool.
He could replace Eden Hazard at Chelsea with manager looking to recruit a replacement for the Belgian international.
Chelsea didn’t miss Eden Hazard until recently when the goals dried up especially at home and Frank Lampard is keen to correct that with a move for an attacking talent like Bale.
