Real Madrid prepared 'to pay half of Bale's wages' to sell him

According to reports, Real Madrid are prepared to pay half of Gareth Bales's wages in an effort to try and sell the Welshman this summer and finally get him out of the club.


Two of the clubs linked with Bale's signature are Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, with the two clubs looking for reinforcements at right-wing.


Bale left Tottenham for Real Madrid seven years ago for what was a world record transfer fee of £85.1 million.


In the past, Bale has admitted that he would consider a return to the Premier League after hitting out at Real Madrid for "blocking everything at the last second", after trying to seal a move to China last summer.


However, trying to sell Bale is extremely difficult for Real Madrid given the 31-year-old's extortionate £600,000-a-week wages and the fact that he still has two years left on his contract.


Reports are claiming that Real Madrid are ready to subsidise some of the wages in order help sell the club,


Zinedine Zidane has made it clear on numerous occasions that Bale is not in his plans, being completely frozen out of the side.


Bale was an unused substitute for the final games of the La Liga season, before being left out altogether on the final game of the season.


During Real Madrid's second leg game against Manchester City in the Round of 16, Bale was allowed to stay in Madrid, showing even more the lack of love that Bale has towards his current club.


In the past, Real Madrid have made it clear that they will not loan out Bale, but will sell him if they feel the need to do so.
