Gareth Bale, the world’s most expensive player is all set for a return to the English Premier League after news of the player rejecting a new contract extension that the Los Blancos offered goes viral. The Welshman is not the most wanted figure at the Santiago Bernabeu as the player is still receiving jeers from a set of the Bernabeu crowd.
Bale joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspurs in the summer of 2013 for a world record fee which made him he world’s most expensive player. The player’s debut season was a successful one as Real Madrid won the La_Decima that the Blancos wanted for a decade. Bale scored the winning goal in the Champions League final, heading a deflected shot by Angel di Maria.
The frontline comprised of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo was nicknamed as ‘The BBC’ after the historic Decima win and the trio was labelled as the one of the finest that football has ever seen. But the things did not go well for Bale in his second season with Real Madrid as he was involved in a number of on-field misunderstandings with club’s talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. Bale failed to pass a simple a ball to Ronaldo which the Portuguese could have converted easily. Instead, the Welshman has gone to take the shot himself and missed. The Bernabeu crowd stuck with the incident for too long and booed the player throughout the season.
Finally, Bale got the faith of the Bernabeu crowd back in his third season (i.e) the current season by playing a pivotal role to lead Real Madrid in the early stages of the season when Cristiano Ronaldo was not in his best shape. But the things has not improved as Bale and Ronaldo did not get along as they used to and that hindered Real’s results. New manager Zinedine Zidane tried his best to stitch the holes but his attempted efforts did not help much.
As per reports, Gareth Bale is longing for a return to the Premier League as he is aiming for a ‘leader’ role which he can not attain with Real Madrid until Cristiano Ronaldo plays in his best form. Bale is reportedly fed up of the situations at Spain and is eager to return where he made a name for himself.
Manchester United and Manchester City are the first teams to get alerted who both are ready to splash anything to bring the former Spurs man back to EPL. With Real Madrid’s attempted tries to extend the player’s contract failed (if the reports are to be believed), it will be just a matter of time before we see the world’s most expensive player making a record transfer once again.
