AFP journalist, Tom Allnutt, has revealed that Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment as the new Real Madrid boss and Zinedine Zidane’s exit is unlikely to change Gareth Bale’s future in Spain.
Bale spent the past season on loan back at Tottenham Hotspur and, although it started off slow due to a lack of chances from Jose Mourinho, the Welshman hit his stride at the turn of the new year.
In the end, the Welsh winger managed 11 goals and two assists in 20 Premier League games, or 16 goals and three assists across 34 matches in all competitions (TransferMarkt).
Allnutt has claimed that Bale remains a financial issue for Real Madrid and the arrival of Ancelotti has not changed that fact.
This comes after Ancelotti himself claimed that he thinks Gareth Bale could have another great season at Madrid, while also adding that he has a lot of affection for the attacker.
However, he did also claim that players needed to show him that they wanted to play for Los Blancos and he would make his assessments calmly.
On Bale’s prospects, there’s very little optimism Ancelotti’s arrival will suddenly transform his situation at Real Madrid. Bale now a financial issue for the club and change of coach hasn’t changed that.
