Bale's agent sheds light on potential deal

Bale's agent plays hardball as client edges closer to Real Madrid exit

July 23, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Agent Jonathan Barnett had harsh words for Zinedine Zidane after the boss urged the team to complete Bale's deal as soon as possible.

Zinedine Zidane has been abundantly clear on one issue: he does not want Gareth Bale around.

The French boss revealed the reasons for not watching the Welsh footballer on the pitch last Saturday, which had to do with a potential exit from the Spanish club. While the Spanish media has covered the story with the options where Bale will end up playing, his agent had something to say about the alleged transfer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, agent Jonathan Barnett hinted that he is indeed working on Bale's exit from Los Blancos, but he urged people to dismiss the idea of this move being something out of the blue, which would damage his client's reputation.

There will not be any improvised deals to get Bale out of the club. Gareth is one of the best players in the planet and I can guarantee everyone that he will not go out on loan," Barnett said.

Barnett has criticized Zidane's words about his client, and he will put up a fight to protect Bale's interests.

Bale has been linked to a move to the Chinese Super League, but both clubs interested in his services are not willing to splash the cash for his transfer. Both teams seem to be interested on a bargain to lure the Welshman to China, but Real Madrid is keen cashing in on this transfer, so they can fund their efforts to sign Paul Pogba.

Bale's agent went on to talk about this transfer, and since the club is only worried about their own profit, it seems that Barnet and Bale are ready to make Real Madrid's life a living hell if they want this transfer to take place.

"Bale is a Real Madrid player, and he will remain a Real Madrid player for now. If an offer that suits us comes along, things could change, then he could leave in a day or in a week. Or maybe, he will remain a Real Madrid for the next three years, until his current deal comes to an end," Barnett added.

The Welsh ace seems set to leave the club after becoming the most expensive transfer of all time for Los Blancos (a record now owned by Eden Hazard). Nevertheless, if Bale is indeed headed to the Chinese Super League, the deal must be finalized before the end of the transfer window in that country, which takes place on July 31.
