Gareth Bale has reportedly rejected plans to move to Tottenham Hotspur. Because, the Real Madrid wing striker did not want to get a salary with minimal money if he moved to Spurs.
Gareth Bale is said to be no longer included in Real Madrid’s plans. He has not been involved in the El Real squad in the last two games. That is a sign that Gareth Bale is no longer needed.
Coach Zinedine Zidane has also signaled that Gareth Bale is not included in his scheme next season. Zidane did not say for sure that he would release Gareth Bale. But, he is now no longer relying on 29-year players.
Apart from being technically no longer needed, Real Madrid want to throw Gareth Bale because of the high salary burden. Real Madrid are now trying to reduce the salary burden on old players in order to have a slot for new players they want to buy.
Quoted from The Mirror, Gareth Bale now gets a salary of 600 thousand pounds in one week. With that value, Gareth Bale is one of the highest paid players at Real Madrid, even in Europe.
Spurs of course will find it difficult to meet these salary standards. Therefore, they are only willing to accept the presence of a player from Wales if he is willing to deduct his salary in a very significant amount.
Gareth Bale then decided to reject the offer to move to Spurs designed by Real Madrid. Gareth Bale chose to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu next season. The former Southampton player also has a contract for the next three years.
