It has been confirmed by Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane himself that the club is looking to sell Gareth Bale in the transfer window. After Bale was not included in the squad for their pre-season friendly match against Bayern Munich, Zidane admitted that the Welsh player was not drafted into the squad as he is close to leaving the team.
Initially, it was being speculated that Bale might stay in the club for another season. However, now with their coach’s revelation, his Real Madrid career has come to an end.
Perhaps it is his struggle with injuries and his failure to rise up to the occasion that has meant that Bale is not preferred in the Real Madrid squad.
One cannot dismiss the possibility of seeing Gareth Bale starring for his former club. Bale was part of the team for six long years and netted 55 goals in his 203 appearances for them. He is also well aware of how the club works as a unit.
In this phase of his career when is looking to restart, going back to the team which worked for him could well be a good idea.
At Paris Saint-German (PSG) this may very well be a time of transitions. Kylian Mbappe and Neymar’s future in the club is uncertain and players like Edinson Cavani and Angel di Maria seem like they have passed their prime.
It is in this context that Gareth Bale may find a perfect place in PSG- a mutually beneficial deal.
Bayern Munich is yet another club that could draft in Gareth Bale. The club managed to clinch its seventh successive Bundesliga title and has been in a good form.
As far as a vacancy in the squad is concerned, the club is short of wingers after having released both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the end of last season.
