Real Madrid has given Gareth Bale a green light to moved on in the summer with any club of his choice as a sign of gratitude from the club.
Bale had ran out of favours at the club before Zinedine Zidane arrived, and as the French manager is planning a revolution in the summer it’s likely not going to make his stay any meaningful.
José Ángel Sánchez, the club’s sport director and Bale’s agents, Jonathan Barnett and Luis Alonso on Monday had a meeting where the director told them their plans to transfer the player, thanked Barnett and the player for the good behavior and commitment to the cause shown by Bale during his time in Madrid promised he would be allowed to chose his next club provided meaningful offers are tabled.
Although a no specific figure was mentioned, Barnett said that any club who wants Bale will have to pay €175m for him and the player would be demanding close to €19,000,000 net per year in salary.
Two outstanding clubs interested in his service are Manchester United and Bayern Munich and the club may consider a deal for the 29-year-old at the Premier League side in order to make advances at Paul Pogba, who has been touted as a summer arrival in Spain recently.
