Gareth Bale: three possible destinations for Welsh forward amid departure speculations as Zinedine Zidane signals his exit after not using him against Real Betis.
Gareth Bale is speculated to be transferred by Real Madrid this summer as the club manager reportedly doesn’t see the Welsh forward in his plans for next season.
Real Madrid had an underwhelming season, while they lost 12 matches in La Liga to end up third in the league this season and a round of 16 exit from the Champions league.
Therefore, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is planning to make a squad overhaul and possibly does not want Bale to be associated with the club anymore.
Furthermore, the players being targeted by Los Blancos will cost them a colossal amount. Thus, in order to fund such hefty sum, Gareth Bale’scan be transferred to make a considerable contribution to the funds.
Hence, considering the probability of Gareth Bale’s exit from Real Madrid, we look at the the three possible destinations of Gareth Bale this summer.
Three possible destinations
Manchester United are the favourites to sign the player as their concerns at the wings are yet to be resolved. Furthermore, the Welsh International has the pace and experience in England to take on the Premier league defenders.
Additionally, Real Madrid can include the player for Paul Pogba deal as Zidane has prioritized to land his compatriot to Madrid.
However, it is also being reported that Manchester United are not willing to hire the services of Bale due to his injury concerns and wage demands.
Gareth Bale is reportedly also linked with his previous club Tottenham and can make a return, where he gained the stardom. Whereas, this transfer could also interest Mauricio Pochettino as possible exit of his key players can weaken his squad.
However, it is also reported by various agencies that given Bale’s current record and injuries, Tottenham might not be ready to buy the Welsh International on permanent basis, thus a loan deal fee of £10 million mooted and Real Madrid paying some of his wages is on the cards.
Juventus is another destination for Gareth Bale and considering the level of competition for the Old lady in Italy, the Welsh International can easily settle in the Turin based club.
Additionally, his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo with whom Bale used to exploit his opponents might help him in rejuvenating his career in Italy. However, the financial demands of Gareth Bale will be a concern for the Italian club.
If he agrees to settle down with lower wages, then Bale can be a viable addition to Juventus’ squad.
According to the rumours, Bale is also being linked with a move to China, but it seems that the move is unlikely to happen as the Welsh International would not consider any options from Asia for a considerable period of time.
