Real Madrid have Gareth Bale wage solution to allow transfer amid Man Utd chase
Real Madrid have offered a wage solution for Gareth Bale that would allow him to leave the club on a transfer this summer.
The Welshman has suffered a tough campaign with the La Liga giants, bring snubbed by Zinedine Zidane towards the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
But Manchester United have emerged as an interested party this week, with reports from Spain suggesting they want to add the 31-year-old to they ranks.
And the Telegraph have reported that Madrid have come up with a plan to get Bale off their books.
The Spanish side are willing to pay 50 per-cent of the forward’s salary to grant him a move away from the Bernabeu, clearing the way for a Premier League move.
That would mean paying half of his £600,000-a-week wages, giving him a “better chance” of finding a new club.
The report also states that Premier League clubs had been speaking to Madrid with just four days to go before their 2020/21 campaign starts.
Bale was a then world record signing for Madrid, costing £85m to pry away from Tottenham chairman Dan Levy.
With 105 goals in more than 250 appearances, the forward has won two La Ligas and four Champions Leagues at the Bernabeu.
But, with just two appearances since lockdown was lifted and a lacklustre title celebration, talks of an exit have been rife – and Bale has commented on his struggles openly.
“Last year they blocked everything [a move to China] at the last second, so it was a project that I was excited for last year but it didn't materialise,” he told Sky Sports.

“There have been other incidents when we've tried to go but the club wouldn't allow it or have done something, so as for the club, what can I say.
“I want to play and I'm still motivated to play football so I guess it's on the club really. I can't really do much, they are in control of everything. I have a contract so all I can do is carry on doing what I'm doing and hopefully something comes up.
“As I've said it's in the club's hands and they make it very difficult, to be honest.”
