Real Madrid are set to offer Gareth Bale to Chelsea as part of a deal for Eden Hazard, OK Diario reports.
Speaking after Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton on Sunday, Hazard confirmed that joining the European champions remains his “dream” and that he wants to “make it happen”.
His comments prompted reports in Spain, that Madrid could look to test Chelsea’s resolve to keep the player.
In an effort to trim their wage bill to fit Hazard’s salary, Real are prepared to offer Bale to Chelsea in an effort to sweeten the deal.
However, it remains to be seen if Chelsea would be willing to pay Bale’s massive contract, which expires in 2022.
