Gareth Bale has rejected an audacious £150m world record transfer to west London, according to the Express. Chelsea manager José Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move for the Welshman, but according to the British paper, his efforts have been disregarded by the former Tottenham man.

Bale joined Real Madrid for a world record £86m just over a year ago, and had cemented his place as a Galactico, becoming a key player alongside the likes of arguably the world's finest, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Battle

However, following a spell on the sidelines due to injury, Bale could be about to enter a battle for his position, due to the brilliance of Isco. The Spaniard has played a vital role for Madrid during Bale's time out, and Carlo Ancelotti will not feel obliged to hand Bale his starting spot without a fight.

With André Schürrle being linked with a £25m move to two of Chelsea's Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Tottenham, a coveted spot in Mourinho's Chelsea squad would be up-for-grabs. Mohamed Salah is also, reportedly, dangling above the exit door of Roman Abramovich's highly-demanding Chelsea regime.

Huge bid

According to the reports, Mourinho is willing to shell out £90m on bringing the Welshman back to London, as well as an additional £60m worth of wages potentially going into the transfer.

Mourinho has also been linked with a cut-price £25m move for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, who, as well as only costing a fraction of Bale's price, earns significantly less money in the wage department. Due to Financial Fair Play, a move for Reus would appear to be on-the-cards.

A move for Reus now seems increasingly likely, with Gareth Bale seemingly determined to remain in the Spanish capital and do battle for his starting berth. Despite Bale's reluctance to move, the reports suggest that Mourinho will continue to monitor the Welshman's progress.
