Gareth Bale rejects Chelsea move

Bale rebuffs Chelsea transfer

Real Madrid midfield sensation Gareth Bale has rejected the chance to join Chelsea, The Express reports.

The Wales international has struggled for game-time in recent weeks at the Bernabeu due to the excellent form of Isco, and The Express claims that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is preparing a club-record move for the talented midfielder.

It is understood that the deal would include a record fee of around £90m with wages totalling £60m.

However, the 25-year-old is believed to be keen on retaining his place in the starting line-up at the Bernabeu and has seemingly rejected thoughts of such a move.

Irrespective of this, the West London club will be monitoring Bale's situation, considering the fact that league rivals Manchester United are also interested in the Champions League winner.
