Gareth Bale 'Tops List Of Seven Players' To Be Axed By Real Madrid This Summer
Gareth Bale 'tops a list of SEVEN players' to be ruthlessly axed by Real Madrid this summer.
Zinedine Zidane is looking to raise over £100 million in a bid to improve his squad with Bale headlining a transfer list of seven players, according to AS.
The Welshman is joined by James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano Diaz, Alvaro Odriozola, Alphonse Areola and Nacho Fernandez.
Zidane wants to reinforce his team when the transfer window reopens but, first, he'll look to ship out some star names to make room for new talent.
Bale has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for over a year now with a sensational Premier League return mooted with former club Tottenham as well as Manchester United.
