Huge! Agent opens up and tells Chelsea £150 million superstar Bale to make transfer decision
Chelsea target Gareth Bale will make a decision on his Real Madrid future at the end of the season, according to the Welshman’s agent Jonathan Barnett.
Bale has been heavily tipped to pack his bags at the end of the season and make a move back to the Premier League, where the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all reportedly keen on trying to nail down his services, despite his hefty price tag.
Despite his poor form and performances, Madrid still Value Bale at around £150 million and the Premier League trio would have to spend big money to land him and then pay above the £500,000-a-week he currently gets at the Spanish giants.
But although Barnett has admitted that Bale is happy at Madrid, he has also admitted that the Welshman will decide his future when the season is up.
Asked on BBC Radio 5 Live if he can see Bale in Madrid next season, Barnett said: “Yeah, why not. He wants to play the rest of his career with Real Madrid.
“If that doesn’t work out, then we’ll talk again. At the moment he’s very happy. He’ll talk with Mr Zidane and take it from there. We’ll see at the end of the season.
“He (Bale) wanted to play one way and Zidane wanted him to play another way. I think that was the cause of it. Over the period of time it just got worse.
“I think if you let Gareth play the way he wants to play and give him a run of games in a row, he can be right up there with anyone. He’s still got a great talent.”
Will Bale head back to the Premier League?
The only realistic clubs that can afford to land Bale are United and Chelsea, and the Blues can not sign anyone so that rules them out the running for the Welshman. United have been long-time fans and will make a move if Bale does decide to leave La Liga.
Arsenal could afford Bale, but it is unlikely that they would pay so much money for the Welshman and then break their wage bracket.
