Bale’s treatment by Real Madrid the club management, its fanbase, and its media mouthpieces has been called an “utter disgrace.”

The Telegraph newspaper wrote that Bale has been made a “scapegoat” to disguise greater failures at Real Madrid as the club has, until this summer, lacked a succession plan in the post-Cristiano Ronaldo era, and has experienced great instability because of the way it fired and hired three different coaches in the 2018-19 season.

Zidane recently said he wanted Bale out of the club for good. The Welshman was absent from a recent pre-season match, a 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich in Houston, Texas, and Zidane told the media that “the club is arranging his exit if [his exit] is tomorrow, that’s for the best. I hope it is imminent.”

Bale has been linked with big-money moves back to the English Premier League, with Manchester United and his former club Tottenham Hotspur reported as possible destinations.
