Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Pérez met this week to plan the transfer market and the squad for the next season. The manager doesn’t want many changes in the squad but there are some players who want to leave the club and Real Madrid will receive some appealing offer to sell other footballers. Among the rumours, L’Equipe published that Manchester United will bid for Gareth Bale, so Los Blancos will have money to sign Kylian Mbappé. Would you sell Gareth Bale?
Among the hundred of rumours that we can read during the summer, Bale’s name is not among them. In the past, the Welshman was linked to Manchester United or Manchester City as he was supposed to come back to his country. Bale’s injuries are preventing him to show his best level with Real Madrid, so it could be a good option to sell him if a good offer arrives.
Gareth Bale played only 19 games during La Liga this season, scoring 7 goals. He started the season quite well, but he got injured several times, the last one in El Clásico. Because of these problems, he lost importance in the squad and missed important games like the Champions League semi-finals or final. Isco replaced him, showing better level and giving more balance to the team, now playing with a 4-4-2 formation.
Bale says he’s happy in Spain and his family is very settled in the Spanish capital. However, he’s not able to speak Spanish yet and the supporters don’t seem to like him very much. In his first season, he scored very important goals in the Champions League final in Lisbon and in the Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona, but he has lost this role in the team.
L’Equipe published this week that Zidane called Mbappé to convince him to join Real Madrid. The French newspaper says that Bale could leave the club and go to Manchester United, so there will be room for the French player. The question is: Is it a good idea to replace Bale for Mbappé?
Real Madrid paid around €100M to Tottenham Hotspur in 2013. No one doubts about his quality and skills, but he has a problem with the injuries. It’s very difficult to be a top player and a very important footballer at Real Madrid if you visit the nursery room more often than the pitch. Should Florentino sell Bale?
