According to reports from Spain, Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is devastated with the sacking of Rafael Benitez and could possibly force a move away from the Spanish capital and return to England. The former Chelsea and Liverpool boss who was sacked by Real Madrid last night was replaced by Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.
Bale is reportedly upset after Benitez dismissal, because he thrived as a player under the Spaniard (Benitez). He scored 9 goals and 7 assists during Benitez 7 month reign as Real Madrid boss. It was clear at some point that Benitez intended to build his team around the Welshman and it was even speculated that Benitez was considering to sell Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the season in a bid to strengthen Bale’s position as the main man at Madrid.
Now that Zidane has taken over as boss many of the players are reportedly on the alert as to what part they will feature in under the new management. And the French legend’s (Zidane’s) admiration for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard isn’t a secret as his comments put “I have no doubts he’ll be back. After Messi and Ronaldo Hazard is my favourite player.” this situation doesn’t help Bale and he might eventually consider his options.
This report of Bale’s situation (a return to the Premier league) will definitely put a number of premier league sides on the alert. Precisely Chelsea and Manchester United. Both clubs have at some point in the past shown interest in Bale. And will definitely re-ignite their interest in the Forward.
