Real Madrid name their price as Bale edges closer to exit

As Gareth Bale edges closer to the Bernabeu exit door, Real Madrid have named their price.

Bale is thought to be one of a number of players who will be allowed to leave as Real Madrid embark on a huge rebuilding project in an attempt to claw back some of the 15 point deficit to El Classico rivals Barcelona.

Los Blancos have been linked with a number of players in recent months including Neymar, Harry Kane, Eden Hazard and Mo Salah, as well as a whole host of top class goalkeepers too. Any of these signings will not come cheap, meaning that they will be forced to sell some of their more fringe players.

Spain star Isco has been linked with a £75m move to Manchester City in the last 24 hours, while reports from Spain suggest that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has convinced Bale to move to Old Trafford this summer.

The Welshman has been linked with a move to the Red Devils in almost every transfer window since 2013 when he left Tottenham to move to La Liga. While he was won three Champions League trophies during his time in Spain, and is undoubtedly one of the best British players to play abroad, his persistent injury problems have seen him pushed to the brink of an exit.

It isn’t just Manchester United who have been linked though, with Chelsea and his former club Tottenham also thought to be interested in his services.

Now, according to reports in Spain, Real Madrid are willing to sell, but only if their received a bid of €100 million (£88m) – a similar fee to what they paid for him five years ago.
