Chelsea could get golden opportunity to sign £88million Manchester United transfer target in intriguing swap deal

Chelsea could get a golden opportunity to seal the transfer of Real Madrid star and rumoured Manchester United target Gareth Bale, according to latest reports in Spain.

Don Balon claim Real Madrid are keen to try again to sign Eden Hazard, but that they are aware that they may need to offer a player like Bale as part of any possible deal.

The report claims Hazard is interested in joining Los Blancos, and this could help push through a move that would spell bad news for Manchester United.

Another report from Don Balon recently claimed United were interested in an £88million deal for Bale, who has been linked by the Sun as one of their top targets alongside Antoine Griezmann for next summer.

Don Balon have also linked Bale with Chelsea this season, so it makes sense that there is now talk that he could head to Stamford Bridge to help replace Hazard.

The Wales international is a similarly lethal attacking player and has previously shone in the Premier League with Tottenham, despite never quite fulfilling his potential in his time at the Bernabeu.
