Real Madrid Club de Fútbol (Real Madrid Football Club), often referred to as Real Madrid or simply Real, is a professional football club in Madrid, Spain. The team wears a traditional white outfit since its founding on March 6, 1902, as the Madrid Football Club. The word Real (Royal) was granted to the club by King Alfonso XIII in 1920 with the crown on the team logo.
The club has been a major force in the domestic and European arenas since the 1950s. Real Madrid has been voted the greatest team of the twentieth century. The club currently holds the record with 13 European Cup / UEFA Champions League titles and is the greatest team in this tournament’s history.
The club is believed to be considering allowing Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez to leave on a free transfer during this summer’s transfer window.
Real Madrid liquidated Bale at unbelievable prices
In the context of financial concerns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, La Liga president Javier Tebas announced earlier this week that Spanish teams, particularly Real Madrid and Barcelona, need to reduce costs before next season.
That will surely lead to the reduction of these two clubs right at the summer transfer window this year. According to the Daily Mail, the board of the club is ready to let Bale and James Rodriguez leave on a free basis if any team can meet the duo’s salary.
Now, pushing the Welsh star to offload payroll has been a success for the Royal Club. Recently, the “emerging giant” Newcastle contacted to buy Bale, while ensuring the same salary for the former Spurs star.
In the latest plan, Real Madrid is preparing to buy Ferran Torres in the summer of 2020 to replace Gareth Bale. The club targeted Ferran Torres to replace Gareth Bale, who lost his form and was often booed by the Madridista himself in the stands of the Bernabeu.
Bale has not been part of Zinedine Zidane’s long-standing plan. The French rulers sought to rid him of the capital Madrid.
James Rodriguez shares the same plight
James Rodriguez is out of contract in 2021 and is earning up to 300,000 euros a week at the Bernabeu. The Colombian is no longer part of Zidane’s plans next season. Atletico, Everton, and Wolves are the three teams interested in this 28-year-old player.
Meanwhile, Bale is receiving the highest salary at Real Madrid with 600,000 euros per week. However, the Welsh player is often injured and does not contribute much to the home team Bernabeu. Besides, he also has a bad relationship with coach Zidane.
Chinese team Jiang Suning was ready to meet Bale’s salary requirement last summer but the deal broke down at the last minute. Now the only question is whether any club can meet the salary that Bale is getting in the Spanish capital.
In recent times, some British newspapers have reported that Newcastle – the team is about to be taken over by Arab owners, ready to bring Bale back to the Premier League with the goal of dragon digestion. Let’s see what happens in this summer’s transfer window.
