Gareth Bale Transfer: PSG are willing to offer Neymar to bring in the Welsh winger to the French Capital following Zidane’s confession of seeing the back of Bale from Real Madrid.
Gareth Bale made a glorious entrance at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2013 as the then most expensive player in the world. Six years on, the Wales international stands on the verge of a shameful exit following Zinedine Zidane’s explosive comments on his future.
The Real Madrid manager openly stated that they were working on Gareth Bale’s transfer and were hoping that he would leave soon.
“If it’s tomorrow it would be better.”

This much was known by everyone but to openly accept it has copped Zidane criticism, none more severe than from Bale’s own agent Jonathan Barnett.
Barnett shot back at Zidane and called him a disgrace for not respecting a player that had given so much to the club before adding “If and when Gareth goes it will be because it is in the best interest of Gareth and nothing to do with Zidane pushing.”
PSG to the rescue
In what should come as a reprieve to all parties involved, Independent have reported that PSG are reportedly looking to cash in on the situation that has come out of the Madrid camp.
PSG have their own problem child in Neymar who is desperate to leave the Parisian club. The Brazilian wants to go back to Barcelona but the Spanish Champions are under severe financial constraints to make the move. Furthermore, PSG are not very keen to see Neymar head back to Camp Nou, following strained relationships between Barcelona and them.
Tottenham are the other club reportedly interested in Bale, but his colossal wages could turn them off from pursuing their former star. It is here that PSG hold the advantage as his fee would not be a cause of concern for them.
A potential Neymar-Bale swap actually makes a lot of sense for all parties with one player afforded an escape from a club that never really took to him while another is allowed to leave a club that he never really wanted to join in the first place #RMCF #PSG

Real Madrid would still have to incur some cash out of their pocket but with their desperation, both to see Bale leave and to bring in world class players, it is very possible that the deal may just go through.
