Madrid (AP) – There are signs of separation between Welsh national footballer Gareth Bale and Real Madrid.
A week after Bale said he could imagine returning to the Premier League, his club Real Madrid have now announced a 25 million transfer fee for 31-year-old Bale, according to the daily “Mundo Deportivo”.
Once Bale Los Blancos had cost a transfer fee of 100 million euros, now they want him – as he was rarely called up by coach Zinedine Zidane in the regular formation and hardly played a role – from the payroll.
“Time will tell what happens, but I think the decision is mainly in the hands of Real Madrid,” Bale told Sky Sport News earlier. He wanted to leave the club a year ago and go to China. Real did not let him go, the Welshman reported.
