German Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich are said to have approached Real Madrid over a potential loan move for outcast Gareth Bale, who is not in the plans of the manager, Zinedine Zidane according to reports.
Despite being under contract at the Bernabeu until 2022, the Welsh winger is free to leave the Spanish giants this summer following Zinedine Zidane’s return to the club which has widened the standoff between the two.
The Wales forward made 42 appearances in all competitions last season but found his game-time increasingly limited and did not feature in the final three matches of Real’s La Liga campaign.
The 29-year-old featuring for the club is expected to drop further down the team’s pecking order next season, following the arrival of Eden Hazard from Chelsea in a deal that could reach £130 million.
Madrid is looking to offload the Welshman in the upcoming weeks but has, so far, struggled to find clubs willing to pursue a transfer for the former Tottenham man which is quite expensive.
Reports indicate that German champions Bayern are willing to match Bale’s massive wages, believed to be around £350,000-a-week, in order to take the player on loan for a season after losing both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery this summer with manager Niko Kovac viewing Bale as the perfect player to add experience to his squad in that area of the pitch.
