Odds of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale leaving increases with Welsh forward upset with treatment



Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has reportedly been extremely upset and fed up with the treatment he has received by the Los Blancos’ hierarchy.

Manager Zinedine Zidane and Bale’s relationship has deteriorated over the years with the French legend making it clear that the Welshman was not in his plans.

An exit looked highly probable in the summer transfer window, however, a move could not be agreed thus Bale had to remain at Santiago Bernabeu.

Yet, the circumstances he finds himself in right now means that a move in the winter transfer window is looking even more likely than it was a few months ago. spokesman Spencer James commented:

“Its clear that Gareth Bale wants to leave Real Madrid but who can afford his wage demands? A return to the Premier League looks out of the question, so the only move and the only place which could afford his wages is a big money move to China”

The defender-turned-winger was highly touted by the Spanish giants in the 2013-14 season after the now 30-year-old had a scintillating campaign with Tottenham Hostpur.

Florentino Perez decided it was worth £90m to bring the forward to Spain, a record transfer fee at the time, as Los Blancos were in search for their elusive La Decima – their 10th Champions League win.

Bale had a superb debut season under Carlo Ancelotti and quickly endeared himself to the notoriously tough Real Madrid fan base. He contributed to an incredible 41 goals in 44 appearances in his first season alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo – the trio was nicknamed BBC.

7/1 Any Chinese Club

10/1 Man Utd

12/1 Tottenham

16/1 Inter Milan

20/1 Bayern Munich

25/1 Man City

25/1 PSG

However, it was Bale’s performances in crucial games that helped him get into the fans’ good books. The electrifying winger scored an iconic winner in the Copa Del Rey final against arch-rivals Barcelona. As well as that, he scored the second goal in Los Blancos’ Champions League final win against local rivals Atlético Madrid to hand Real their La Decima.

The Welshman continued to put up great numbers in the following seasons under Ancelotti and his replacement Rafael Benitez, the fans fell out of love with him. His hefty price tag was a stain on his perception as they expected even more from Bale.

As the years went on, Bale became older and more susceptible to injury. He often became injured in important times and Real were able to cope without him just fine.

Despite going on to win three Champions League titles in a row with Los Merengues, even scoring a double against Liverpool in the 2017-18 final, the fans of the club didn’t appreciate his talent.

Following on from that final is when it became clear that the manager had also shared the same viewpoint as the fans. There were rumours and rumblings around the Madrid camp that Zidane did not view Bale as an integral member and that became extremely clear the next season.

The Real Madrid boss was very public about the idea of letting Bale leave the club and was somewhat urging the Welsh star to exit.

As well as this, rumours were coming out saying that Bale was not integrating with the squad properly with his refusal to learn Spanish a key factor.

All of this, culminated into a big falling out last summer. Madrid were desperate to get Bale off the books as he is still on huge wages. The 30-year-old was also open to the idea of moving on to pastures new.

A move to the Chinese Super League looked perfect for both parties but Madrid pulled the plug late on leaving Bale perplexed. With Zidane still having Bale in the squad, he decided to have the Welshman feature a lot more this season.

However, Bale was suddenly left out of the Champions League squad against Club Brugge, which he has deemed to be the final straw.

Angry and confused, the Welshman and his agent Jonathan Barnett are looking for a way out. Despite Bale’s age and huge wage demands, he can still be an asset to many top clubs – as showcased by some of his great performances this season.
