Caughtoffside.com believes Chelsea are plotting a £22 million raid for Bale next summer.
Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly keen on bringing in some younger players and Bale would be the perfect fit.
Meanwhile, Goal.com is under the impression Manchester United fancy the cut of Bale's jib.

Sticking with United, midfielder Michael Carrick has told ESPN he has no intention of leaving Old Trafford in the summer.
Carrick had been linked with a move to Aston Villa, but he said the following this week.
"I have seen some stories suggesting I'd be leaving last summer but I take no notice. It's part of the game. I have never thought I was on my way out of United, not for one minute." he said.
