It might seem odd to consider that Arsenal could secure the transfer of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this summer, and the chances are that it will not happen, but if the reports from Spain about the Spanish La Liga and Champions League holders being ready to sell then there is at least a chance that Arsenal could pull off this shock transfer coup.
According to the Daily Star the reasons Madrid are ready to sell the Wales international star is that they need to balance the books but are planning to make a big to sign the young French striker Kylian Mbappe from AS Monaco and it will cost well over £100 million to do so.
One of the reasons Madrid were not thought to be favourites for the 18-year old was the competition for the three forward places but now Zinedine Zidane has accepted this and has chosen Bale as the player to go then things could start to happen very soon.
The fact that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners were in the mix to sign Mbappe ourself shows you that the club has a lo9t of money and plenty of ambition in the transfer market as well, so with the report claiming that Bale’s fee could be around £90 million, why should Arsenal not hope to get him?
The biggest obstacle could our EPL rivals Manchester United who are being linked with Bale and have been hoping to sign him for years, but can Arsenal beat them to the punch? Will Wenger even try?
