With Gareth Bale recently stating that it is his plan to return to Real Madrid next season, the Spanish club will reportedly put him up for sale at an incredibly low price.
The Welshman returned to Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan at the start of the campaign, but recently revealed it has always been his plan to go back to the Spanish giants once the season is over.
While Bale's comments surprised many given his seemingly strained relationship with the Real hiearachy, it does not necessarily mean he will continue to play football for the LaLiga club, but rather indicates that he might not be interested in staying at Spurs permanently.
The winger has had a strange season in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho, having been in and out of the team throughout the 2020/21 campaign.
Bale is among the 10 highest-paid players in world football, but where exactly does he rank? Have a look below:
Reports have suggested that Bale's injury issues have annoyed the Portuguese tactician at times, while it has also been claimed that the player has not been entirely happy with the amount of game time he has had.
The 31-year-old now looks set to go back to the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners when his loan spell in north London ends, but Real are reportedly planning to sell him.
According to El Confidencial, president Florentino Perez will look to move the winger on if an asking price of just €15 million (R310 million) is met ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, when the player will have just one more year on his contract in Spain.
Despite some fitness issues, Bale has shown glimpses of brilliance at times this season, and has contributed to six goals in his past six Premier League matches.
