Real Madrid transfer news: Gareth Bale to Chelsea move 'definitely' possible this summer

CHELSEA cannot rule out signing Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale this summer.

That’s the verdict of former Premier League star Clinton Morrison, who says the Welshman could replace Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge.

Bale has made 188 appearances and won 10 trophies since joining Real Madrid from Tottenham in a then-world-record £85m deal in 2013.

And he can help Zinedine Zidane’s side secure their third Champions League title on the spin when they face Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday.

Bale has been tipped to leave Real in the summer though as Florentino Perez shakes up their squad following a disappointing domestic campaign.

Morrison, who played for Crystal Palace and Birmingham in the top flight, believes Bale could “definitely” rock up in west London.

"Oh yeah," Morrison told Express Sport, when asked if Bale would get into Chelsea’s team. “Bale’s a talent.

"He’s done alright at Real Madrid. He hasn’t played as much as he wants but he scored a good goal the other day against Barcelona.

"He probably wants to play football. I think when you go to a big club like Madrid he did start playing but for whatever reason these young boys have come through, [Lucas] Vazquez and [Marco] Asensio and he ain’t playing at the moment.

"But he’s still got a lot of talent and it might be the time now for him to come back and play week-in, week-out in the Premier League. I don’t know if Tottenham fans will be happy if he goes to Chelsea and not back to Tottenham but it is a move that could happen most definitely.

"Chelsea will need someone like that because if they lose someone like [Eden] Hazard, they will need to bring in a replacement like a Gareth Bale."

Gareth Bale has also been linked with a return to Tottenham, as well as with a potential switch to Manchester United.

Real, meanwhile, are thought to be lining up potential replacements for him on the right side of their attack.
