Five months without 90 minutes for Gareth Bale

February 20, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Gareth Bale has not played a full game for Real Madrid for five months, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.

Bale, is more than likely expected to return to England this coming summer, where both Manchester United and former club, Tottenham Hotspur, are showing interest.

The Welsh winger has struggled with fitness and form in the past 12 months and has seen his playing time come under heavy pressure from Spanish youngsters Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.

Having not played a full game since September 20th, when Los Blancos lost at home to Real Betis, Bale has failed to gain 90 minutes in his 13 games since then, limited due to injuries.

A summer exit then is expected, whilst French striker Benzema, his time now seems to be coming to an end, scoring only his fourth goal in La Liga on Sunday evening in the 5-3 win over Real Betis.

The former Lyon front-man is understood to have received offers from China, whilst a return to France has also been mentioned and interest from England has been maintained.

President Florentino Perez is keen to look at bringing in replacements, having been labelled with interest of Paris Saint Germain duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, whilst Robert Lewandowski is keen to leave Bayern Munich for the Santiago Bernabeu.
