Reports coming out of Spain suggest that Gareth Bale is once again unhappy at Real Madrid and wants a move away from the club, per AS via Sport Witness.
The publication claims that the Wales international was not happy with being dropped from Real’s squad for their Champions League group stage clash against Club Brugge last week, and is now vying for a move away from the Spanish capital next year.
Bale looked to be leaving the La Liga titans in the summer having seemingly fallen out of favour under manager Zinedine Zidane, with a move to the Chinese Super League looking like the most likely destination for the 30-year-old.
He remained put in Spain, however, and has now notched two goals and two assists for Los Blancos in seven appearances (all competitions).
Bale admits to ‘playing with anger’ at Madrid this term after speculation surrounding his future at the Bernabeu was rife throughout the summer.
“You play with a lot of emotion. Anger comes into it of course, but I haven’t got anything to clear my mind about,” said the former Tottenham wide man (via Sky Sports).
“I try and give my best whether here [with Wales] or in Madrid and I will continue to do that,” he added.
TalkSPORT reports that Bale could move to Manchester United on loan in January, should his relationship with Zidane continue to worsen, with a permanent move next summer a potential avenue the club could explore should things work out at Old Trafford.
Bale’s relationship with Zidane, and Real Madrid as a whole now, is becoming more and more toxic as time progresses. A move back to England, where he scored 56 goals and assisted a further 58 for Tottenham (via Transfermarkt), could be exactly what the Welsh forward needs.
United, 12th in the Premier League, are a club in disarray at the moment and could do with someone of Bale’s pedigree to help them in the goalscoring department, making this potential move seem like the ideal situation for both parties from the outside looking in.
Is this the worst Manchester United team in the Premier League era?
