The agent of Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has thrown a spanner in the works in regards to the player’s future with the club. Here’s a look at what was said and how it could all play it out.

Gareth Bale arrived at Real Madrid five years ago and at the time was a world record transfer. The Welshman has been a popular topic on this page over the past week. From needing to step up as a leader at this club to falling short of the club expectation, he is now in the headlines as his agent turns up the heat.

Jonathan Barnett, who is Bale’s agent, amongst many other big names who have said some pretty brash statements in the past. After Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Roma, in which the winger netted a goal, Barnett commented on Bale’s future with the club. He responded to the press saying, “Gareth is very happy at Real Madrid, but if we’re talking about the future then nothing is impossible in the transfer market.”

Real Madrid has been struggling since the major shifts that took place this summer. The club currently sits in sixth place in La Liga and Bale hasn’t been able to be as impactful as fans would’ve hoped. He has scored only six goals from 17 matches played.

At 29 years old and things looking bleak in Madrid, Serie A could be quite appealing. The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to Italy has attracted some other big names and increased the validity of the league. Bale could now be one of those people. Gareth’s agent also said that he  “loved playing with Cristiano.”

Is it possible for the two to reunite some time soon?

The Welshman has been linked to other clubs like Manchester United and a return in Tottenham Hotspurs in the previous season, but still remains at the Bernabéu. If he were to depart, it would open up a lot of space on the account books to put that money towards other players.

On the plus side, any club who’s willing to pay top dollar for a 29-year-old forward is a bonus for Real. It would be better to sell him while he’s worth more or when his contract expires. Doing so would also allow for Real Madrid to rebuild its side with more flexibility.
