Chelsea Battle Man Utd for Gareth Bale, Spanish Expert Explains His Situation at Madrid

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague delivered setback to Chelsea by claiming that Gareth Bale is happy to stay at Real Madrid.

The Blues have been linked with a move for the Welshman, with some sources even claiming that a swap move including Eden Hazard could be on the cards, but Balague has refuted all such theories.

“Let’s first ask why he was unhappy,” Balague told Sky Sports.

“A lot of the players at Real Madrid are not playing as a team, they are playing for themselves and he has been brought up with the concept of a team to work well.

“So he was devastated, because he felt that Rafa was actually working in that direction of making it work as a team, and for half an hour against Valencia everybody did what they had to do.

“But it’s also easy for his representatives or whoever to come out and say ‘next he’s going to go’. Putting him in the market is the logical step if you are the representative of Gareth Bale.
