Chelsea and Manchester United are preparing a staggering £172 million bid to lure Gareth Bale back to the Premier league this summer.
The Welshman secured a then world record £86 million move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 and has enjoyed unprecedented success with the Spanish giants.
Winning the UEFA Champions league twice, scoring the decisive goal in the first final and a sublime winner in Copa Del Rey final against Barcelona, Bale has also claimed the FIFA Club World Cup.
Gareth Bale is on course to win his first La Liga title this season.
With the increase in financial power of the Premier league, Chelsea and Manchester United are eager to bring the 27 year old back to England.
For the first time in 20 years, a team from England’s top flight broke the world transfer record, when the Red Devils parted with £89m to sign Paul Pogba.
It is believed that Bale is happy at Real Madrid and plans to become the club’s main man after Cristiano Ronaldo. A league triumph this season will see him having claimed every possible trophy available at the Santiago Bernebau.
Gareth Bale may be tempted to add the Premier league to his glowing collection of medals and become the world’s most expensive player for a second time.
He can thrive at Manchester United to replicate his childhood idol Ryan Giggs. While Chelsea will offer him a chance to return to London.
Los Blancos are a point clear of second placed Sevilla with a game in hand to their advantage.
