Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to sell Gareth Bale in the summer according to reports. It is believed that this is the Welshman last season at the club as the club have gotten tired of the player.
Fox Sport reports that Madrid are contemplating selling Bale to rivals Barcelona in what could be a swap for Phillipe Coutinho. Coutinho has endured a torrid time in Spain and looks likely to leave for another club in the summer with PSG currently favourites for his signature.
Real Madrid have received an offer from an unnamed Chinese club for the services of Bale but the player does not favour a move out of Europe. The 29-year-old has alienated players in the dressing room with his unwillingness to learn Spanish and his aloof character.
Manchester United have been linked with a move for the player which seems to look the most likely option as the English giants are one of the few clubs that afford his wages. Madrid have already lined up Eden Hazard as a replacement for Bale.
The Chelsea man is expected to sign for the Los Blancos in a deal worth £100 million. Bale has enjoyed a trophy-laden stint at the club and has come out clutch for the team with important goals in the Champions League finals.
He has scored 102 goals for the club which is impressive as he has spent a vast majority of his time on the treatment table. Signing Bale and offering him huge wages would be a huge gamble by any club.
The talent is obviously there but can he be able to keep fit all season that’s the big question.
