Real Madrid are reportedly considering selling Gareth Bale in the summer after the winger failed to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit to Juventus.
Bale has had just two goals in his last seven games for Real and is no longer guaranteed a place in the starting XI for the team.
According to Marca, Bale could leave Real at the end of the campaign as the club consider using him as a bargaining chip to sign either Eden Hazard or Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
18-year-old Vinicius Junior has jumped ahead of Bale in the pecking order at the club, and Real have been left frustrated that the 29-year-old has been unable to take his game to the next level.
Despite being in his sixth season at Real Madrid, Bale still hasn’t learnt Spanish, while his injury problem is another reason for concern.
If Bale was to depart Madrid, then Manchester United and Chelsea would be potential destinations.
A return to Tottenham would appear unlikely at this stage given that the club will not be able to spend large amounts due to the work on their new stadium.
Bale’s current deal at The Bernabeu runs until the summer of 2022, but a change is needed if he is to see that contract out.
During his time at Real, Bale has been able to win the Champions League four times and has also won the La Liga trophy and the Copa del Rey.
This campaign Bale has scored 12 goals and provided five assists in 30 games across all competitions.
