Bale: “The decision is in Real Madrid’s hands, but they’re making things very difficult”

03 Sep 2020

Gareth Bale has accused Real Madrid of making it hard for him to leave the club.

The Welshman has two years left on his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu but isn’t part of Zinedine Zidane‘s plans.

“We’ll see what happens, we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well,” Bale told Sky Sports.

“Time will tell but mainly I think the reason is that the decision is in Real Madrid‘s hands.

“I tried to leave last year but they blocked everything at the last second.

“It was a project I was excited for but it didn’t materialise.

“There have been other instances where we have tried to go but the club won’t allow it or they’ve done something.

“It’s down to the club.

“I want to play football, I am still motivated to play football, so I guess it’s on the club.

“They are in control of everything.

“I have a contract, all I can do is carry on what I am doing and hopefully something comes up.

“I am only 31 still but I feel I am in great shape and feel like I have a lot to give.

“We will see what happens.

“It’s in the club’s hands but they make things very difficult to be honest.”

When quizzed on where he would be willing to go, Bale didn’t rule out a return to the Premier League.

“If those options arise, it is something I’d look at for sure,” he responded.

Bale was speaking while on international duty with Wales.

“I think everyone knows how much I love coming away with Wales,” he added.

“It’s nice to be back at a place where you are a little bit more appreciated and supported by your fans no matter what.”
