‘Impossible for Bale to remain at Real Madrid’ – Spurs loan switch could happen, says former president
Gareth Bale’s ongoing struggles at Real Madrid have made it “impossible” for him to remain at the club, claims former Blancos president Ramon Calderon.
The Wales international was returned to Zinedine Zidane’s plans for a final day clash with Real Betis on Sunday but was left on the bench despite the Santiago Bernabeu witnessing another forgettable 2-0 defeat.
Zidane stated afterwards that he must act in the best interests of the team after Bale was overlooked for a potential Madrid farewell against Betis.
That is considered to be the latest nudge towards a summer exit for a man who has spent six years in the Spanish capital, with Calderon conceding that his position has become untenable.
“Zidane is not keen on him; it is a relationship that will come to an end,” Calderon told BBC Sport Wales.
“It seems it was his last game for Real Madrid.
“Zidane, last year when he left, he thought it was imperative to keep [Cristiano] Ronaldo and to sell Bale and they decided not to do that.
