Real Madrid are reportedly concerned about Welshman Gareth Bale and his role at the club after double losses and history with injury
Real Madrid’s loss of Cristiano Ronaldo has left the club without a goal scoring leader with the club hierarchy some sort concerned they had placed too much trust on Gareth Bale who is currently not performing and a slave to injury.
According to Telemadrid, Madrid are unhappy with Bale’s tendency to put his own interests ahead of the club and are worried about the striker’s will to play for his country side despite still nursing an Injury which saw him subbed against Atletico Madrid and Alaves.
Gareth Bale was subject to leaving Real Madrid in the summer with Manchester United and Psg the likely destination, but decided to stay after Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left the realm of Santiago Bernabau.
Real Madrid seemingly put too much trust in the welsh man to lead Real Madrid in the absence of the Portuguese striker – probably why they didn’t sign an experienced replacement – and he is currently failing to inspire his team of late.
Gareth Bale had an explosive start to the season under Julen Lopetegui, but went missing as injury hit, followed by a goal drought, a drop in a display and double losses to CSKA Moscow and Alaves.
Sources say Madrid feel they should signed a better replacement for Cr7 and let the Welshman leave in the summer since he wasn’t an integral part of Zinedine Zidane’s squad anyway rather than let him take the role.
Wales face Spain without Gareth bale but will probably have the striker ready for the fixture against the Republic of Ireland.
“Gareth has got a little bit of muscle fatigue and he won’t be involved against Spain,” Wales boss Ryan Giggs said.
“We don’t want to take any risks and we are monitoring it every day. I would say he is 50-50 at the minute for the Ireland game.”
Despite the tussle, Madrid hope to get their man back, well and sound to play after the international break.
