Real Madrid will allow Gareth Bale to leave the club at the end of current campaign.
The ex-Tottenham winger has had difficulties, struggling for form as well as fitness in the past 18 months which has seen him drop down the pecking order. The Wales international is keen to leave in the summer to get first team football and is keen to rejoin his former club Spurs. Bale’s morale is said to have taken a hit when left out for the Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain last week, as well as La Liga clashes with Real Sociedad and Leganes.
Marca reports his agent Jonathan Barnett is working to push through an exit when the transfer window opens. It is understood that Madrid won’t block his move as they are prepared to accept a cut-price offer. Reports from Spain also suggest that boss Zinedine Zidane is unwilling to use the 28 year old as it has become infeasible for Bale to block the pathway of young players such as Marco Asensio.
Regarding his recent injury layoff, the Los Blancos are prepared to accept a figure below the £80m mark that Manchester United were supposedly ready to hand over last summer.
