Real Madrid Ready To Accept An Insanely Low Fee For Gareth Bale This Summer

Real Madrid Ready To Accept An Insanely Low Fee For Gareth Bale This Summer

Real Madrid will let Gareth Bale leave the club for a cut-price £22 million as they attempt to lower their wage bill.

Bale recently expressed his frustration at 'Los Blancos' making it difficult for him to move away.

He played just two games for Madrid following football's restart and refused to travel for a Champions League clash with Manchester City.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo have revealed manager Zinedine Zidane doesn't see the Welshman in his plans and will happily move him on.

Furthermore, Bale is on a massive £600,000-per-week contract and clearing that is said to be more of a priority than receiving a big transfer fee.

James Rodriguez joined Everton earlier this week and it helped reduced Madrid's wage bill down to £312 million.

Manchester United and former side Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move, but they are focusing on other targets.

Bale nearly joined Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning last summer before Madrid stepped in and blocked a deal.

When asked why a move fell through, the 31-year-old told Sky Sports: "I think the club needs to answer that question because I tried to leave last year.

"They blocked everything at the last second. It was a project I was excited for last year but it didn't materialise.

"There have been other instances where I have tried to go but the club won't allow it or they have done something.

"It's for the club. What can I say? I want to play football. I'm still motivated to play football. I guess it's on the club. I can't do much. They are in control of everything.

"I have a contract and all I can do is carry on with what I am doing and hopefully something comes up. It's in the club's hands."

When asked about a potential Premier League return, Bale replied: "It's one of those situations if those options arise it's something I would look at, for sure. We'll see what happens.

"We have plenty of time in this transfer window and I guess a couple of others as well. Time will tell.

"It's not really in my hands, the decision is in Real Madrid's hands. They make things very difficult to be honest.

"Whatever goes on at Madrid doesn't really affect me."
