Real Madrid happy to sell Gareth Bale to Manchester United

Real Madrid are now willing to sell Gareth Bale to Manchester United in order to generate the required funds to sign Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.

This is according to the Daily Star, who cite publications in Spain as suggesting Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to offload the world’s most expensive player if it results in the acquisition of Belgium international Hazard, who is now unquestionably one of the Premier League’s best players.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will do everything in his power to keep Hazard at Stamford Bridge, but could be powerless to prevent the 23-year-old from completing a dream move to the Bernabeu in the near future if a big enough offer comes in.

United prepared to pay £90m

Should Manchester United stump up the £90 million required to sign Bale - and reports in Spain suggest that they are - then Real Madrid will use a large portion of that figure to lure Hazard to the Spanish capital.

It was reported in September that Hazard was close to signing a new bumper contract with the Blues. Two months on, however, and the technically-gifted attacking winger is yet to put pen-to-paper on a new deal with his current employers.

Ancelotti wants Hazard

With Cristiano Ronaldo approaching his 30th birthday, and Bale failing to convince Ancelotti this season, perhaps Hazard is thinking about the possibility of replacing one of the Real Madrid superstars as the Bernabeu’s next Galactico.

Ronaldo looks set to stay with Real Madrid after a phenomenal start to the season, but Manchester United would be more than happy to take Bale, provided it means they can also keep Angel di Maria.

Reports this week claimed Ancelotti would consider the idea of swapping Bale for Di Maria, but it seems the Italian now has his heart set on signing Hazard instead.
