Zidane Gives Real Madrid Green Light To Sell Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale

It looks like Zinedine Zidane has finally had it with Gareth Bale's situation and has told Real Madrid that they can feel free of selling the out-of-favor forward ahead of this upcoming transfer window.

Bale has faced a lot of scrutinies ever since arriving at Santiago Bernabeu, with most Spanish fans feeling he was reluctant to adapt to Spain and didn't even care for learning the language or step up as a leader.

His future has been up in the air for a couple of weeks, especially considering his relationship with Zidane wasn't at it's best when the Frenchman was first in charge of Los Blancos.

The winger, who's set to turn 30 years old in the summer, has struggled to find playing time during Zidane's comeback, and he was fiercely booed by local fans during Madrid's poor outing against Eibar.

So, it looks like the Frenchman wants Real Madrid to get rid of Bale as soon as possible, even if that means losing money in the meantime, considering he was initially bought by €100m from Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Independent.

Bale has struggled to stay healthy ever since completing his move as the world's most expensive signing and the lack of fitness has made him one of the most inconsistent players on one of the best teams in the world.

Bale's agent had already claimed that, while his client was comfortable in Spain and would love to stay put at Real Madrid, he was also open to leaving the club and find more playing time, also stating Madrid fans should be ashamed by the way they've treated 'The Cardiff Express'.

Manchester United was allegedly interested in signing the winger earlier in the past, but whether he's going to have any takers in the summer considering his history with injuries is yet to be seen.
