Tottenham Hotspur legend Gareth Bale is set to leave Real Madrid.
The Spanish club's head coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed on Sunday that the former Spurs winger was NOT part of his plans at the Bernabeu going forward.
Tottenham have been linked with a stunning transfer of their favourite Welshman on and off for quite a while now.
Despite winning four Champions League titles and scoring twice in their last European Cup final win, Bale has never been had the Cristiano Ronaldo-like popularity among los Blancos' fans.
And from the terraces to the dugout, Graham Roberts has said on Twitter that it is 'disgusting' to see how the 30-year-old has been treated recently.
Real Madrid treatment of @GarethBale11 is disgusting huge money does not buy class at all from them. He has done so much for the club and the fans at Madrid have treated him terribly. He will never have the support and love he had like he had from Tottenham fans.— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) July 21, 2019
So he's leaving Madrid, but does that mean he's returning to Tottenham? In a word, no.
The reality of the situation is that Bale is earning £600,000 per week in Spain [The Guardian] and although a wage cut is inevitable if he stays in Europe, the North Londoners still won't be able to pay him what others can.
Bale left Tottenham to join Real in a then-world-record £85 million in 2013.
