From ESPN - November 11, 2017

With the January window on the horizon, there's plenty brewing in the transfer market. All the latest deals and potential deals can be found here.

Real Madrid set Bale fee

Real Madrid have slapped an 85 million price tag on Gareth Bale as Manchester United continue to monitor the winger's situation in Spain, reports the Daily Mirror.

Bale has struggled with injuries throughout his time in Madrid, and the Bernabeu board are apparently ready to cash in before his value begins to decline.

Now 28, the Welshman is still a huge asset to Zinedine Zidane's side when fit, but sadly calf and thigh problems have sidelined him for much of the season.

That has not put off United, however, who are joined in expressing an interest by Bale's former side Tottenham along with Chelsea.

It's likely a deal will be thrashed out next summer, when it might be possible to negotiate a lower fee depending on how much Bale is involved between now and the end of the campaign.

Zaha to replace Sanchez?

Arsenal have not had to look very far to find a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according toThe Sun.

The Gunners are preparing to raid London rivals Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha, who has maintained last year's fine form despite the Eagles' problems this term.

Zaha, who was capped twice by England in friendly matches before switching his allegiance to Ivory Coast, has scored twice so far this season -- including the winner against Chelsea -- to follow his tally of seven goals and nine assists in 2016-17.

The 25-year-old's performances have alerted Arsene Wenger, who is now plotting a 35m move for the former Manchester United winger.
