Chelsea and Manchester United will have to fork out a massive £80m to sign Real Madrid star Gareth Bale this summer, despite the player’s recent dip in form, according to CaughtOffside.
The Wales international is wanted back in the Premier League after struggling to replicate his best form in La Liga, and could now be heading to Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge if his £80m asking price is met.
Bale has come under some criticism for his form this season, and has made headlines once again this week due to a poor showing in Real’s 2-1 defeat to Juventus in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Still, that has not put Premier League clubs off him, with the 25-year-old previously showing himself to be one of the best attacking players in Europe with his fine form for previous club Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea and United look to be his main suitors this summer, but it is clear he won’t come cheap.
