The Chilean forward did not board the plane with his United team-mates on Sunday, amid speculation he faced visa problems after he accepted a 16-month suspended sentence in Spain regarding a tax issue.

However, Don Balon added that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has informed Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho that unless he sacrifices Lukaku he can not stands any chance of signing Bale this summer.

"Manchester United would be a much improved side with him in their line-up".

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League last term to condemn the Blues to a second campaign in three seasons without Champions League football.

The club have signed Diogo Dalot and Fred so far this summer, missing out on reported targets such as Willian and Ivan Perisic due to their prolonged involvements at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Perisic scored in the final, leveling for his side after Mario Mandzukic had scored an own goal to give France the lead, before they eventually succumbed to a 4-2 defeat.

The Portuguese manager has reportedly made Shaw available for transfer, with Spurs, and Southampton having being linked, but according to The Times, Shaw has turned down the chance to move to Everton in a bid to save his Old Trafford career.

United do need to bring more options for their attack this season and getting Perisic would be a great deal, even if he is 29 at the moment.
