Mourinho asked Real to buy Bale last summer

Jose Mourinho has claimed that he asked Real Madrid to try and buy Gareth Bale last summer.

The Portuguese, now in charge of Chelsea, told ESPN that the pressure on Bale would be huge if he makes his dream move to the Bernabeu.

“I asked the club to buy him last season but it was not possible. It looks like it is happening this season so I am happy for them because they get a fantastic player. But the numbers are huge numbers and the kid has to go now and there’s pressure to prove that he’s worth that investment.”
