Report: Real Madrid to sell Gareth Bale in January

Report: Real Madrid to finally sell Gareth Bale in January

October 28, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Merengues are ready to partnways with the ex-Tottenham Hotspur superstar.

Gareth Bale's days as a Real Madrid player are all but over, a new report from Spain has revealed. The 30-year-old Welshman is said to be heading for the exit door with Los Blancos eyeing up his sale in the upcoming winter transfer window.

Earlier this summer, the former Tottenham Hotspur star found himself at the epicenter of a transfer controversy with his manager Zinedine Zidane claiming that he had no future with his side. As a result, he was offered up for a transfer elsewhere with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Bayern Munich all tipped as his likely destinations.

In the end, a move to the Chinese Super League looked like the most probable option for Bale but an anti-climax emerged after Real Madrid pulled the plug on a potential transfer to Jiangsu Sunning. Having made the U-turn, the Welshman has started the season in excellent form and became a regular for Zidane's Real Madrid.

However, an ankle injury picked up in Wales' match against Croatia during the international break has caused the winger to be out of action for the past two weeks. On Monday, it was revealed that he had traveled to London from Madrid after doing some light work in the gym to aid his recovery.

While speculations surrounding Bale's departure were previously believed to be over, Spanish publications AS has now brought to light that Real Madrid is finally considering his sale. According to the newspaper, the Welshman's trip to London is also in connection with his imminent exit as he is now exploring options for his future.

In a relative development, Real Madrid's inability to offer a fitness update since Bale's injury has been attributed to the fact that the winger asked for the club not to publish medical records. The player's agent, Jonathan Barnett has since addressed the issue, citing that there was nothing extraordinary about his client's request.

"Medical records are private," he told ESPN FC.

"If every citizen's medical reports are private, why should Gareth's be public?"

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is yet to comment on the situation and is expected to omit the ex-Spurs star from his squad for the mid-week's clash with Leganes.
