Man United move for £110m star boosted as Real Madrid target Chelsea attacker

Real Madrid’s interest in signing Chelsea star Eden Hazard could pave the way for a successful Man United bid for long-term target Gareth Bale according to the excellent Sport Witness.

This source cites Sunday Times reports that claim Bernabeu president Florentino Perez has set his sights on Premier League stars Eden Hazard and Philippe Coutinho as he looks to re-shuffle the Spanish giants’ Galatico pack.

It’s believed that Real Madrid would consider an offer of £110m for 26-year-old Welsh international Gareth Bale, a fee that would smash the world record fee, which is held by the former Tottenham man who’s £86m move from White Hart Lane in 2013 is still to be bettered.

Gareth Bale has proven a success since moving to the Spanish capital, scoring 41 goals and providing 29 assists in 96 appearances for the La Liga side.

Louis van Gaal has spent a great deal since he took over at Old Trafford but the £256m he has invested in new players has been partly covered with £94m made from player sales and Man United’s money men appear happy to fund the Dutch manager’s forays into the transfer market and the capture of a player of Bale’s standing would act as a real statement of intent.
