Bale Threatening To Quit Real?
Gareth Bale Threatening To Quit Real Madrid?
Welsh superstar Gareth Bale is reportedly threatening to leave Real Madrid if he is overlooked by manager Zinedine Zidane.
The player's future has been unclear in recent weeks, with some reports suggesting that Manchester United are interested in luring him back to England.
It has been reported that Jose Mourinho would be willing to wait until next season to sign the player, but according to Diario Gol, Bale could ask to leave if he is overlooked at the beginning of the campaign.
The former Tottenham Hotspur winger has struggled for form in pre-season, and featured in just 27 games for Los Blancos last season.
Bale is said to be aware that United are interested in his signature, and also reportedly knows that if he moves to the Red Devils, he would likely be the club’s main man in attack.
The Wales international is looking for Zidane to show faith in him at the start of the campaign, with Real's first competitive game coming against the Red Devils – in the UEFA Super Cup final – next Tuesday.
Real then play FC Barcelona twice in a row in the Spanish Super Cup, fixtures Bale will hope to star in.
Bale has played 150 games for Los Blancos since joining the club in 2013, scoring 67 goals and creating a further 51 strikes.
