Real Madrid are ready to offer Gareth Bale to Tottenham Hotspur, but they want Christian Eriksen in a swap deal.
Real Madrid are already in a transition this season, but they will be planning to sell some of their stars in the summer transfer window. Florentino Perez is eager to bring in new faces to the club, but he looks at long-term options rather than stop gaps.
Gareth Bale, who moved to the capital city of Spain in 2013 is under enormous pressure to deliver. That overload was on him following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus last summer.
The pressure got to him, but he is not able to deliver at the biggest stages and bail out his club like his former teammate. Besides, there was a certain incident which has infuriated the supporters.
Former #HalaMadrid star Predrag Mijatovic claims that Gareth Bale’s best position is still uncertain.

A week ago, Gareth Bale was on the substitute bench until the 74th minute. Midfielder Casemiro won the penalty, and the Welshman converted from the spot-kick to give the lead for the Los Blancos and win the game.
During the celebration, when Lucas Vazquez tried to leap over him, but the former Tottenham Hotspur pushed him aside and celebrated only with selected players which gained much attention. One supporter wrote to the club and wanted the Real Madrid forward to apologize for that action, but he did not care about it.
In the post-match press conference, the Los Blancos manager Santiago Solari said that he could celebrate in any manner, but insisted that the Welshman was delighted to bag a goal and help the team.
“He was ecstatic when I saw him in the dressing room having got his goal. That’s all your speculation because he was waiting to come on. I told him to wait.
“I’m thrilled with how he went out there and he looked hungry when he got on the pitch. He clinched the win for us and worked extremely hard. When we went down to 10 he was running for two up top and I thought he had a great game.
“You have an awful lot more eyes than we do, but we’re there and what I saw is how hungry he was to get on the pitch and help the team. I’m very pleased, he can celebrate the goals however he likes.” said Solari.

After the victory over Levante, two games against Barcelona beckoned in the Copa Del Rey and La Liga. But, the reigning Champions League winners lost both the games and Gareth Bale lasted for just 83 minutes in these couple of games. Besides, he was booed by the Santiago Bernabeu for that one-hour of traumatic performance.
His injury record over the years is another factor which might force Florentino Perez to cash in on him in the summer transfer window. Over the last few months, Real Madrid’s interest in Christian Eriksen has been very well known to the public.

The English publication Mirror says that Real Madrid are ready to offer their forward Gareth Bale in a swap deal which will involve Christian Eriksen. The Danish International’s contract ends in 2020 and is hesitant about putting pen to paper with the English club.
Several reports quote that the Los Blancos will be priced out by Tottenham Hotspur, but the Spanish outfit have now responded with a swap deal. Real Madrid forked out a then world record transfer of 81 million pounds for the Welsh International in 2013, but he has never been able to perform consistently because of the injuries he suffered.
