Gareth Bale’s sojourn at Real Madrid is numbered

Gareth Bale’s sojourn at Real Madrid is numbered

Madrid: If the latest media reports are to be believed, Real Madrid have decided to put the Gareth Bale up for sale at the end of the season.

“It has become infeasible for Bale to block the pathway of younger, potential Ballon d'Or winners like Marco Asensio and as such his situation is unlikely to change between now and the summer,” wrote Spanish daily Marca.

He was benched for the Paris Saint-Germain or the recent La Liga clashes against Real Sociedad and Leganes, and Bale needs game time to return to form and yet that is something Zinedine Zidane is increasingly unwilling to give him.

“Nobody in Madrid sees him as a future Ballon d'Or winner or as someone capable of getting close to Ronaldo's level,” the newspaper added.
