Emery should try and wrap up £100 million Arsenal deal as superstar Bale wants out of Real Madrid
Arsenal should make a move for Gareth Bale amid reports he wants to leave Real Madrid.
Bale has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few months as all indications suggested that he was leaving Madrid during the transfer window, especially after Zidane came out and pretty much admitted that he no longer wanted the Welshman in his squad anymore.
That led to a lot of transfer speculation that he could be heading back to the Premier League, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and even Arsenal boss Unai Emery even linked with a shock move for the Welshman.
And with the transfer window now closed, Zidane has done a total U-turn and admitted that Bale will now be staying at the club, telling the AS website: “We talked about it before the match, I think we talked about it two or three times to say that he is going to stay. And all the players that are here now are only thinking about this season.
“I think this is true considering the way Gareth performed, but not only Gareth. I think that everyone played a good game.
“All we have to do is to think about this season and I am sure that he and all the other players only think about staying here and play.”
But according to fresh reports on Spanish publication AS, Bale has now decided that he does indeed want to leave Madrid and will seek a move away in the coming windows, alerting some of the biggest clubs in the game to a possible deal.
The 30-year-old was left out of the squad for the recent Champions League encounter with Club Brugge last week and has been in and out of the side under Zinedine Zidane.
Arsenal are one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and have more than enough money to attract such a massive player to the Emirates, and if they want to get back to the very top, adding a game-changer like Bale to the side would send a real statement.
Its just a case of whether or not Arsenal want to take an opportunity like this, as Bale does not come onto the market all the time.
