Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid in 2013 for over £85m, thus forming an eternal part of the BBC trio, and helping Los Blancos win number of titles over the years. Since 2016/17, however, the wide-man has spent more time on the treatment table.
Thanks to his consistent injuries, manager Zinedine Zidane now looks more comfortable with the likes of Marco Asensio, Isco, and Lucas Vazquez in his lineup.
Meanwhile, the Welshman has been linked with Manchester United endlessly, and it seems he is likely to leave for Old Trafford, as he is considered surplus to requirements at Real.
Florentino Perez is aware of the fact that the the 28-year-old’s value has gone down to £53m because of his injury problems. Therefore, he sees United’s interest as something the Galacticos might need to take advantage of when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Real Madrid would agree to sell Bale only if they get star goalkeeper David De Gea in return. The Spaniard has been in stunning form this season, and has already managed to keep 8 clean sheets in 11 appearances.
Bale has not featured for Real Madrid since their 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League back in September, and he has also been left out of the Spanish giants’ upcoming clash against his former club Tottenham.
