Real Madrid could be all set for the unthinkable this summer, selling either Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale.
Spanish publication Don Balon is famous for circulating crazy rumours and they are once again in a more than active mode ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Spanish outlet’s latest report claim Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane were to some extent disappointed with the performances of Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in the 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.
The publication suggest that if performances don’t improve one of the three could leave this summer, despite Real seemingly marching to the La Liga title.
The report further states Perez and Zidane don’t want to tinker with Real’s famous front three. However, if the trio continue to misfire then Real will look to sell one of them in the summer.
Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or for the fourth time in December and has notched 35 goals in 40 games in all competitions so far this term. Given his position as the world’s best, Ronaldo is less likely than Benzema to be the one to leave.
Voice Your Opinion:
However, Ronaldo’s age, 31, compared to 27-year-old Bale and 29-year-old Benzema, may make him a bit vulnerable as the Spanish giants start to look to a future beyond their celebrated triumvirate.
The Portuguese superstar has managed only one goal in last five games and it hasn’t been appreciated by the Bernabeu hierarchy.
So, come this summer, wait for some crazy rumours regarding the famous ‘BBC’s future.
