Gareth Bale's stay at Real Madrid has had its fair share of ups and downs during the seven years at the Spanish capital. The Welsh winger has scored 80 goals in 169 appearances for Real Madrid, including that spectacular overhead kick in the Champions League final over Liverpool. However, Gareth Bale has had his fair share of differences with Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane in recent years, which has fuelled rumours that the former will be offloaded in the summer transfer window.
As per multiple reports in Spanish publications, Gareth Bale is one of the seven Real Madrid players to be offloaded in the transfer window, which will take place after the entire coronavirus situation ends. Zinedine Zidane is aiming for a squad revamp this summer and is looking to offload the services of James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano Diaz, Alvaro Odriozola, Alphonse Areola and Nacho Fernandez along with Bale.
The likes of James Rodriguez, Mariano Diaz have found playing time hard to come by this season as Real Madrid trail Barcelona in the LaLiga standings. Alvaro Odriozola is currently on loan at Bayern Munich and could make the move permanent should the Bundesliga giants trigger their option to buy. Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola's loan move from PSG will end this June.
