Chelsea are ready to battle Manchester United for unsettled Real Madrid star Gareth Bale. The Mirror says Chelsea are ready to rival United for the signing of Bale. United have stepped up their interest in the Welshman who is considering his future at Real Madrid following Rafael Benitez’s sacking.
But Chelsea are also interested in signing the 26-year-old, particularly as new Real boss Zinedine Zidane has been tipped to make a move for Eden Hazard.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez could demand £150m for Bale as he is unwilling to sell the forward.
