Real Madrid are willing to subsidise half of Gareth Bale’s salary to enable him to find a new club this summer, according to The Telegraph.
The Welshman, whose contract at Los Blancos runs until 2022, doesn’t have many suitors in the current transfer market due to his extortionate wages, a colossal figure of 14.5 million euros net per season.
Real Madrid could cover half of the Welshman’s salary in the two remaining seasons on his contract if it opens the option of a move abroad, most likely a Premier League team, which would be the logical option. Bale knows the league, a league where he has been named player of the season. In addition, the Premier League’s TV rights deal gives the clubs economic potential, which would make it viable to find a team capable of covering the other half of Bale’s contract, of just over seven million euros per season.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are the teams reportedly most interested in Bale at the moment.
