Real Madrid transfer news: Superstar wants to join in the summer, Gareth Bale's selling price revealed, and more - 6th February 2018
Real Madrid are struggling to find a consistent run of wins in the 2017-18 season and are currently 19 points behind league-leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona. Manager Zinedine Zidane is getting all the backing from his board for now and if Zidane ends the season strongly, he could even get the job for another season.
Zidane is expected to be handed a massive war chest for summer's transfer window with club President hoping to bring a new set of players to compete against Barcelona. On that note, we take a look at the top Real Madrid transfer rumours on 6th February 2018:
Eden Hazard to become the next Galactico
Belgian superstar Eden Hazard is reportedly prepared to quit Premier League in favour of a move to Real Madrid in the summer after a disappointing season with Chelsea, reports The Daily Star (via Don Balon).
According to the report, Real Madrid have already opened talks with Hazard and are expected to make a substantial offer for the winger.
Hazard was tipped to join Real Madrid last summer but the player broke his ankle before the start of the new season which stopped the transfer move from going through.
As per Don Balon, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is keen to pair Hazard with Neymar as he looks to recreate a new Galactico era at the Santiago Bernabeu.
With Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema facing a goal-draught and falling behind Barcelona in the La Liga title chase, Real Madrid are expected to spend heavily in the summer transfer window.
Gareth Bale's selling price decided
Gareth Bale and Real Madrid attended a secret meeting earlier in the week where the club has finally decided to sell the Welshman in the summer and have slapped a £80 million (€90 million) price tag on the player, reports Diario Gol.
Diario Gol claims Bale is more than likely to make his Premier League return with Manchester United and Tottenham rumoured to be interested in signing the winger.
Despite winning 2 UEFA Champions League titles and scoring in one of the finals, Bale's Real Madrid career never took off as expected, owing to his constant injury issues.
Bale has scored 76 goals in 169 appearances for the club but his time at Bernabeu could soon come to an end as Los Blancos are looking to form a new Galactico side with Eden Hazard and Neymar reported to be their new targets, according to Don Balon
