SPANISH LEAGUE GIANT SPLASH £131m PRICE TAG ON THEIR STAR PLAYER

Spanish League giants Real Madrid are reportedly set to offload their star striker Gareth Bale at the end of this season.

The 29-year-old has scored just nine goals and two assists for Los Blancos in all competitions this campaign.

His current deal with the Santiago Bernabeu side expires in the summer of 2022 but the La Liga side are hoping they can cash in on the forward before then.

Bale joined Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in the then world record fee of about £85.3 million and has won four Champions League titles with the club.

The Mirror quoting Spanish TV network Telemadrid claims the Galacticos president Florentino Perez has set a fee of between £105 million and £131 million for the Welshman.

However, his career at the club has been heavily plagued by series of injuries, and with the change of guard, starting shirt is not guaranteed for him.

As Santiago Solari prefers to start Brazilian starlet Vinicius Junior ahead of Bale after a string of impressive displays.

The 29-year-old is also competing with Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema for a spot in attack despite being tipped by many to take over after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure last summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been linked with a move for former PFA Players’ Player of the Year in the 2010-11.

Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that Real Madrid star Gareth Bale could be handed a 12-match ban by the FA following his gesture after scoring in his side’s 3-1 win over Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitan.

The former Tottenham star netted Los Blancos’ third goal against their city rivals in the 74th minute, which was also his 100th goal for the club.

But after scoring, Gareth Bale made a gesture raising a bent arm, and hitting it with his other hand, and the action might see him sanctioned by the Spanish authorities.
