Gareth Bale’s agent insists he is ‘very unlikely’ to leave Real Madrid even in summer

According to Gareth Bale’s agent, the Welshman has no intention of departing Real Madrid in the near future while also claiming that he has plans to play another full season in La Liga.

Last season, Real Madrid gaffer unsuccessfully tried to force Bale out the exit door but the winger has since then returned back to Real Madrid’s scheme of things.

As quoted by ESPN, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has insisted that his client is not just ‘going nowhere’ while the January transfer window is open and is also ‘very unlikely’ to depart in the summer of 2020.

The 30-year-old has a contract that runs until 2022 and the lucrative terms of the deal mean that only very few clubs can afford him.

Bale’s weekly wage stands at £600,000 and was mooted as a potential target for Major Soccer League teams in the United States during the present window.

The nearest that Bale has come to leave was last year when he was linked with a potential transfer to the Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning worth around £1m a week. Real, however, blocked the switch at the 11th hour.

The winger has endured a difficult season with Madrid’s supporters booing him after Bale posed with a flag that read: “Wales, golf, Madrid, in that order.”

This season, Bale has featured 14 times for Real and scored twice. His team is second in the Spanish league standings with Barcelona ahead of them only on goal difference.

He joined Real from Tottenham in 2013 for a then-world record fee and has won the Champions League four times since moving to Spain.

Real Madrid is currently competing in the Spanish Super Cup which is being held in Saudi Arabia. They defeated Valencia 3-1 on Wednesday and will play either Barcelona or Atletico Madrid in the final.

Bale, however, has been ruled out the finale with a chest infection after also missing Real’s semi-final clash against Valencia.

At the moment he is not ready,’ Zidane said. ‘He did not train this week. We have to speak to doctors, but the important thing is what the players did and we’re happy with the game.’
