Real Madrid Put Gareth Bale Up For Sale
Reigning European and Spanish champions “Real Madrid’ appear to have run out of patience for Wales international superstar Gareth Bale.
Former Tottenham man has had the total of 19 injuries since his arrival to Santiago Bernabeu and ended up playing only 55% of his time in Madrid because of which he is deemed a failed investment for the royal club.
The Spanish giants have apparently placed Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham on high alert, ahead of the January transfer window.
Their decision to put him up for sale was due to his latest setback – a thigh injury picked up in training on Friday – has proved to be the final straw.
Bale has won three Champions Leagues, one La Liga title and the Copa del Rey during his time in Madrid.
But Los Blancos are now open to offers for their winger, according to the Sunday Mirror.
Jose Mourinho was heavily linked with Bale in the summer but a move failed to materialise.
And the report suggests that the Red Devils will be the favourites to land the 28-year-old when the transfer window reopens.
However, long-term Madrid target David de Gea could be mentioned in any transfer discussions.
But Mourinho will be keen to keep hold of his number one, especially if they are to try and challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.
