When love goes sour everything falls apart! It also happens in the football world.
This is the current state at Bernabeu Madrid. It is in the public knowledge that the relationship between the new Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and the winger Gareth Bale has not been good.
Bale’s agent earlier claimed the feud between the winger and the Frenchman is down to the style of play.
The Welshman’s future at the Bernabeu has been cast into doubt after the return of Zidane as manager.
Bale has had a difficult season in Spain and failed to see eye-to-eye with the man who brought three successive Champions League titles to Madrid.
Zidane came in March to rescue Real Madrid who seemed to have drowned and looks forward to making several changes at Bernabeu this summer and the most notable figure he could be relieving is Bale.
The 29-year-old has been left out of Real’s matchday squad for their last two fixtures with Zidane said to be prepared to relegate Bale to train with the Under-23 side than include him in his first-team plans.
According to reports, Gareth Bale has been offered back to Tottenham Hotspur in a £10 million loan deal.
Bale earns over a staggering £600,000 a week at the Bernabeu but the current European champions are prepared to accept an offer where a club who are willing to loan the Welshman will pay around £250,000 a week towards his wages along with a £10million fee for the season.
Bale left Tottenham to join Real in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85million and even failed to report for training in order to push through a transfer.
With Harry Kane reportedly earning £200,000 a week at Tottenham, the reports of a club paying £250,000 a week towards Bale’s salary would make him the club’s highest paid player which certainly wouldn’t sit well with the squad who have worked hard to get the club in the position it is today.
The Welsh still has three years left for his contract to end at Real Madrid which would see him earn over £10million in wages.
