Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has revealed that Gareth Bale will most likely leave the club on loan this summer.
Ramon Calderon talked about Real Madrid forward Bale in a chat with BBC Sports Wales amidst the ongoing transfer rumours linking him with an exit from the club.
Gareth Bale can leave Real Madrid on loan or on a permanent deal this summer after falling out of favour with manager Zinedine Zidane.
Bale has been frozen out of Real Madrid by manager Zinedine Zidane in recent weeks thereby leading to talks about his long-term future at the club.
The Welsh international star has been touted as a possible transfer addition to several Premier League clubs including Chelsea.
Bale has been targeted by the Blues as one of the players that could replace star player Eden Hazard who’s expected to leave Chelsea for the Los Merengues this summer.
Hazard has a year left on his current deal at Chelsea and Real Madrid are ready to swoop for him this summer.
On his part, Bale has three years left on his Real Madrid contract which runs out in 2022.
The 29-year-old was dropped from the Real Madrid squad for the last two league games against Villarreal (3-2 win at home) and Real Sociedad (3-1 loss away) before being benched during the 2-0 defeat at home to Real Betis in their final game of the season.
Apart from Chelsea, Gareth Bale has been linked with other Premier League sides like former club Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
