Gareth Bale has reportedly made the decision to leave Real Madrid according to Don Balon.
That’s after being left on the bench for the second leg against PSG – after failing to start the first one as well.
The player wants to make a move to a club who can restore his reputation and show he’s one of the best in world football – something people are currently doubting – and with his injury record, things haven’t gone as well as the player would have hoped – yet he’s still in high demand with no shortage of suitors.
So people were flustered about Bale not starting. Our first goal was a throughball beauty from Asensio (replaced bale) to Lucas Vazquez (replaced bale) who crossed to CR. Zizou’s decisions were validated in these two ties. Happy for him.

We probably won’t get him but signing bale would get fans so excited and would be the perfect marquee player you need when going into a new stadium

Bale simply doesn’t seem to play in Real Madrid’s big games anymore…apparently not good enough.

While Bale himself may be doubting his place at Real, one man who has offered him his full backing is manager Zidane – though you’d imagine the player himself would rather be on the field and not on the bench during the games, and the words from Zidane are probably hollow at best.
“The most important thing is the squad and the players,” he said. “I respect all the players – Gareth Bale too.
“It’s true he started on the bench in the first leg and tonight as well, but it doesn’t matter.
“I have to choose players and Gareth is a really important player and will be until the end.”
