Real Madrid fans vote to drop Gareth Bale

Published 3 Comments

Real Madrid fans picked out Gareth Bale as the player they most want dropped according to a recent poll. Almost a third of fans voted for the Welshman to be left out of their next game in a poll run by Spanish newspaper AS.

Of around 12,000 fans who cast their vote, 31% picked Bale as the man who should be dropped, with James Rodriguez and Isco suggested as possible replacements.


Cristiano Ronaldo also came in for criticism in the poll, with just over 15% of fans suggesting that he should be the one dropped, although that was before he scored five in Real Madrid's 9-1 win over Granada at the weekend. Bale was also on the scoresheet in that fixture.

Hamann, who starred on the international scene for Germany throughout his playing days, believes it's time for Hummels to move on after a lengthy stint at Dortmund.

In fact, the ex-Liverpool and City midfielder has insisted that the commanding World Cup-winning centre-back is in need of a new challenge, with a number of clubs interested in the player's signature.

He is interesting to many clubs. Hummels has had some great performances at BVB but a transfer makes sense for both sides," he said on German TV show Sky90.

"His era has come to an end. He has not played as well this year but he is still very successful. For both parties, it would be best if Hummels changes club this summer."

Manchester United want to swap Van Perside for Cavani

And finally the Mirror report that Manchester United are ready to sell Robin van Persie at the end of the season, and hope to replace him with Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.

Van Persie’s current contract expires in the summer of 2016 - and rather than allowing him to leave on a free transfer, United hope to cash in on the former Arsenal captain before the start of the 2015-16 season.
