Gareth Bale could be set to stay put at Real Madrid for at least another season, according to a report from Marca.
The Welshman has fallen down the pecking order at Madrid over the past two seasons, and his relationship with the hierarchy and the fan base seems to be on an all-time low.
Predictably, reports have indicated that the Spanish giants are keen on selling the pacey left-footer this summer but his wages are proving an issue in finding a buyer (AS).
Tottenham were said to have made a major attempt to bring the 30-year-old back to North London in January but they ultimately failed in their pursuit once again (Daily Mail).
Marca now state that Real Madrid have had no offers for the Welsh international of late and it does not seem as if a bid is on its way.
The report reveals that, with the Asian market closed, there are not many clubs in a position to afford Bale, although Newcastle are mentioned as a potential suitor.
The report also asserts that the former Spurs star would prefer to stay at Madrid and see out the two years he still has left on his bumper contract, before moving elsewhere.

While Real Madrid would be keen to remove Bale from their wage bill, very few clubs in the world will be able to match the Welshman’s wages given the financial impact of COVID-19. It does not seem like Bale is too keen on taking a wage cut and so he seems likely to stay put at Madrid for at least one more season. I believe that he will run down his contract and leave on a free in two years to play in the MLS as a 32-year-old.
