Real Madrid have finally decided to let go of their record signing, Gareth Bale.
The Welshman has been struggling with injures in the last two seasons and this has limited his playing time at Real Madrid. In the wake of this, the club have decided to offload him.
Bale is also willing to leave Bernabeu for a return to the Premier League where he first made his name at Tottenham. This coupled with the decision of club president Florentino Perez to let him go, it is almost certain this is the 29-year-old’s last season in Spain according to The Mirror.
With his injury woes, he has added little to Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid team this season and as such has forced the team to start playing a new formation without him.
His availability has alerted potential suitors in the Premier League in Manchester United and his old club, Tottenham Hotspur. The European champions are willing to make as much as £100m from the sale, but both suitors are not willing to pay beyond €60m.
It is unclear if Madrid will allow him leave for a fee in that range or will keep the attacker. With is decision to only play in the Premier League, the Welshman could well stay a longer while before any club would be willing to pay that amount for him, especially for someone with his injury record.
A move out of Spain might help him rediscover himself as he has only played 10 times in all competitions for Real this season.
Bale’s performances so far with Madrid have been nothing short of brilliant, bagging 56 goals in 105 league appearances and also contributing in winning the UEFA Champions League on three occasions and the La Liga title once.
