According to 90MIN, several Premier League sides are considering a loan move for Gareth Bale, if Real Madrid accept to pay a major portion of the winger’s wages.
The Los Blancos outfits refused to let the 31-year-old leave Madrid for free last summer but now the possibility of paying the player his £600,000 a week is looming large for them, even though he will likely struggle for football action under Zinedine Zidane.
Bale, who is quite an unpopular figure in the Spanish press, increased speculation about his future at Santiago Bernabeu by conceding that he is open to a Premier League move.
The Spanish giants were determined earlier to not pay anything for the forward’s transfer, rather insisting bidders that they should pay a fee for the permanent signing of the player.
However, the 90MIN report says that they have now changed their stance and are now ready to subsidise the winger’s wages following the lack of any real interest.
Club officials have reportedly talked to many English sides about the Welshman’s loan deal, and it is said that seven sides have shown interest in hiring the services of the 31-year-old.
The Wales international’s former club, Tottenham, are reportedly leading the race for his signature. The Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho is known as a big fan of the player.
While Manchester United could also be a destination for Gareth. The Red Devils have been pursuing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho but they could also target the experienced forward if they fail to land the 20-year-old.
The other interested English clubs mentioned in the report are Everton, Newcastle, West Ham, and Leicester City.
