Five Million Real Madrid Fans Voted On Which Players Should Stay And Leave
Almost five million fans have had their say on which Real Madrid players should stay and which should leave the club this summer.
Keylor Navas, Jesus Vallejo, Theo Hernandez, Sergio Reguilon, Dani Ceballos, Marcos Llorente, Mateo Kovacic, James Rodriguez, Martin Odegaard, Oscar Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Brahim Diaz and Mariano Diaz are the names of those who could soon be on the move.
Spanish outlet AS decided to carry out a poll where Real fans accumulated an approval rating for each player and out-of-favour Gareth Bale is right at the bottom of the queue on 9%.
Bale was denied a potential farewell appearance at the Santiago Bernabeu, where Real lost 2-0 to Real Betis this afternoon.
The Welshman remained on the bench throughout and after being overlooked by Zinedine Zidane, headed straight down to the tunnel at the end of the game.
