One online football store has started selling Chelsea shirts bearing Gareth Bale's name amidst rumours the Welshman could be on his way back to the Premier League.

Ali Express in Brazil are selling Chelsea shirts for the 2015/16 campaign bearing the logo of new sponser Yokohama, and have somewhat optimistically included Bale in and amongst Blues favourites Diego Costa and Eden Hazard.


The former Tottenham player has struggled with Real Madrid this season, prompting speculation that he could be on the move in the summer. Manchester United are said to be keen on taking the world's most expensive player back to England, while Chelsea have also been credited with an interest.

Despite the rumours, Bale has been quick to deny reports of a move to Old Trafford, insisting that he won't be leaving Spain any time soon.

"I can't see myself at Manchester United," Bale told radio station Cadena SER back in January. "I am enjoying myself and we are winning trophies. I want to continue doing this at Real Madrid."

He added: "I feel the support of the Bernabeu. I am going to continue working to show what I am capable of doing on the pitch and so as to win more trophies. I don't think I'm greedy. On the pitch I make assists and score goals. I play the game how I like to play and the press can say what they want."

Chelsea appear to be more interested in trying to sign Paul Pogba than Bale in the summer window, although they could face competition from Manchester United if they try to sign the French ace as well.


In all liklihood, this is no more than a publicity stunt from a website hoping to sell a few more shirts. What is more real though are Bale's struggles at Madrid.

He says he won't be leaving soon and a summer transfer seems to be a no-go, however 2016 could be the year he comes back. By then, Chelsea may well be interested.

Would Gareth Bale be a better fit for Manchester United or Chelsea?
