Chelsea will this summer lodge a £40m bid for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale as the Stamford Bridge prepare to make significant moves in the transfer market as they look to freshen up a squad that has stuttered somewhat this season. Carlo Ancelotti has the full backing of owner Roman Abramovich to make a serious offer for the Welsh international and will hope that the lure of a move to the West London side will appeal to the youngster.
Ancelotti and Abramovich are looking to build a new generation of talent at Chelsea as a number of the club’s squad edge towards the end of their glittering careers. Having spent large sums in January to bring in David Luiz and Fernando Torres the Blues will push on with more big name additions when the season comes to an end.
Whilst hopes of retaining the Premier League title appear to be fading Chelsea will hope to secure a top four finish and importantly will hope that their White Hart Lane rivals miss out for a top four finish which would aid any move to lure Bale into leaving Tottenham.
The 21 year old former Southampton man has had an incredibly season during which he has put himself on the footballing map and attracted the interest of European giants Inter Milan and Real Madrid and after an unsure start to his Tottenham career Gareth Bale has now become an integral part of the North London club’s plans for the future and Harry Redknapp will fight tooth and nail to prevent any prospective suitors from getting their hands on their prized asset.
Chelsea find themselves entering the end of an era with the back bone of the club getting on in years with the likes of John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba all over 30 and other key players such as Ashley Cole, Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka also entering the final stages of their careers and Roman Abramovich is keen to bring in players to help any transitional period run as smoothly as possible.
Whilst the club’s academy has indeed produced talented individuals like Josh McEachran there are not countless young talents coming through the youth system and as such Chelsea will look to buy up quality players with great potential, hence their interest in Gareth Bale.
