Real Madrid are reportedly ready to cash in on Gareth Bale.
Bale, 28, shot to prominence with Southampton way back in 2006, notching five goals in 43 games before earning a 2007 move to Tottenham Hotspur, where his slow start appeared to be dulling his potential.
However, the Welshman moved from left back to the left of midfield, and that sparked a stunning run, smashing 49 goals in his last three seasons for Spurs in his final season at White Hart Lane.
Bale's then-world-record move to Real Madrid in 2013 saw him hit the world's elite, and his first three seasons in Spain cemented him as one of the top players in the game – but things are turning a little sour for the winger.
After scoring just seven league goals last season, Bale's injury woes have sparked up again this season, limiting him to just six starts in all competitions – and The Mirror report that Real Madrid are now ready to sell Bale in 2018.
Whilst a January move seems unlikely, it's believed that Real are prepared to let Bale go, leaving Premier League sides Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested in landing him.
Bale's time at Tottenham would make a return to North London incredibly emotional for the wide man, but Chelsea and United may be more willing to match his financial demands in order to lure him back to England.
Spurs fans would no doubt love to see Bale back, but if it means selling a star player like Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli or Harry Kane in order to fund a deal, they would surely rather keep their stars rather than bring in a 28-year-old with well-documented injury problems.
