Chelsea could ask Real Madrid to send them Gareth Bale after Eden Hazard shifts alliances, according to reports from England
The Belgian’s stellar showings at Stamford Bridge this season have seen him score 19 goals and provide 16 across all competitions, as he seems to be on the verge of completing his long-awaited move to La Liga giants.
Los Blancos have been chasing the 28-year-old for years, and if the latest reports are to be true, they will announce his £100m transfer after the Europa League final.
Faced with the loss of their standout performer, the Blues are frantically looking for reinforcement even though Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic will join the club in the summer.
As reported by the British outlet, Daily Star, the Pensioners could try to grab Real’s outcast Gareth Bale should Los Blancos opt to release him on a free transfer.

Zinedine Zidane’s latest actions have undoubtedly shown that the 29-year-old won’t be part of the team next season, as Los Merengues prepare squad overhaul over the summer.
Bale’s staggering £13m salary is the reason the Spanish heavyweights would like to send him away, but it is also the main reason why many English outfits opted not to make a move for the Welshman.
However, a prospect of snapping up a player of Bale’s caliber without a compensation fee seems irresistible, especially giving Chelsea’s ongoing problems with FFP.
Although the former Tottenham Hotspur star has endured an underwhelming campaign by his standards, his class is unquestionable.
Additionally, Bale could be tempted by a potential Premier League return and his extensive Premier League experience could play a decisive role in this operation.
