Gareth Bale is keen on an ending season at Real Madrid after his loan spell.
AS have reported that as per sources that are close to the player, he wants to have one last go at Real. These desires have been fueled by the recent position of Zidane coming under scrutiny. If Real management decides that Zidane should leave at the end of the current campaign, Bale has been thinking to return to Real Madrid to complete the last year of his ongoing contract.
Bale was sent back to Tottenham Hotspurs on a full season loan deal at the start of the 20/21 season, however, he hasn’t been an integral part of Mourinho’s plans. However, even if Zidane remains in charge, Bale could return to Madrid, since only a few clubs can pay his current salary without some part being paid by Real Madrid.
Real Madrid would want to end up in a desirable situation where Spurs end up triggering another contract extension. Another year where Real pay half of Bale’s wages will ultimately last till his contract ends and a huge chunk of their wage bill will be cleared.
Bale currently earns 30 million euros per year, half of which is divided by both the clubs. But his injury woes continue to be a problem as his fellow forwards continue to shine for the club. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have been in the form of their lives and lead the charts in the Premier League in goal contributions. Although the Welsh international’s capability is not under doubt, he has barely seemed himself for a long time now. Once a phenomenal part of the fearsome trio at Madrid, he just isn’t it anymore.
At the same time, Real Madrid have reduced their wage billion by massive steps; with the sale of players like James Rodriguez who earned around 16 million per year. In the background, Pérez is trying to work out how the Liga giants can fund renewals of leaders in the dressing room like Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric, also keeping in mind the necessary transfers in the upcoming windows. As for the future of Bale at Madrid, it seems unlikely that he will be given another go at Madrid, despite his own desires.
