Zinedine Zidane doesn’t plan on having Gareth Bale at Real Madrid beyond the summer, and the club believe his cycle in the Spanish capital is over.
It’s time for solutions to be found, but an exit isn’t easy due to his determination to remain in Madrid, combined with the fact that there are no offers on the table for him.
Bale earns 17 million euros per season and few clubs can meet those demands. Madrid expected Manchester United to come forward, but their failure to reach the Champions League will prevent that.
As a result, Bale‘s options are reduced and Madrid are evaluating all of their options. They don’t want the player on the plane to Los Angeles with them for their pre-season tour on July 8.
A return to Tottenham Hotspur has been suggested, but the Londoners aren’t likely to be able to afford it.
Bayern Munich have been raised as a possibility at the Santiago Bernabeu as they look to renovate their squad and are planning to spend big this summer, but it’s true that they’ve not shown any interest.
Bale will turn 30 on July 16 and he doesn’t have many options on the table. He dreams of winning the Ballon d’Or, but he’s now struggling to find a club who will pay and play him.
