Gareth Bale is linked with a sensational move in the January transfer window. The Welshman hasn’t had his best year at the Santiago Bernabeu this campaign. With multiple rumours linking him with a move to China in the summer itself. Though none of it materialised and Real Madrid and Gareth Bale were stuck in a relationship that none of them wanted.
“Having Mourinho there is an amazing statement from the club, I think he’s a serial winner,Tottenham want to win trophies and I don’t think there’s a better partnership than Mourinho and Tottenham together to try and win some trophies”, this was Gareth Bale’s opinion on the appointment of Jose Mourinho by his former club.
Implications were made of this comment at that time too. Though with nothing being seen around the horizon, the rumours vanished. But the reports in Spain have linked Gareth Bale and Christian Eriksen in a swap. The shock move would also see the Premier League side paying a fee around the £25 millions mark to the Galacticos.
Zinedine Zidane has already made his wishes clear in the summer regarding Gareth Bale‘s departure. Some even say the Frenchman can’t wait for Bale to leave. The former Tottenham Hotspur player lost his few left admirers at Madrid when he displayed that controversial banner on international duty. The banner read, “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order”.
The deal makes sense for all patties as Real Madrid would love to see £600,000-a-week getting off their wage bill. While Christian Eriksen has also struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho. His departure has already been seen as an inevitable by the lily whites admirers.
The winter transfer window has already got its first high profile rumour even before it officially opens. Whether this move materialises or not is yet to be seen. Though if it does, it would make sense.
