Gareth Bale should leave Real Madrid

Published 3 Comments

Gareth Bale came to Real Madrid for a record transfer fee and it seems that he is now buckling under the pressure.

Crowds at the Bernabeu have high expectations of the Welsh wizard and have been disappointed when Bale's performances have been average instead of magical.

Having lived in Madrid for the past two years, I've seen and heard the jeering and watched the disappointed crowd of Madridistas make it clear that they aren't going to cut Bale much slack.

The player has suffered a noticeable downturn since his second season at the club and this could be due to the lack of support from fans or from his position in the team.

Bale will continue to live in Cristiano Ronaldo's shadow for the next few years at least. At Tottenham, he was given the creative freedom and backing of the manager to create goals. He also had a team completely built around his creative ability.

Bale would be appreciated more in England

At Real Madrid, he is no longer the star man. Perhaps this is part of what has affected his confidence as well, but Gareth Bale doesn't seem like one to be quite too egoistic when it comes to things like that.

Bale is the type of player that should have a team built around his talent. He is definitely too good to play in anyone's shadow and having just turned 26, is now in his peak years.

Bale's talent would perhaps be far more appreciated elsewhere and with news of Premier League sides like Chelsea and Manchester United being interested in signing Bale, maybe it's time he reassesses his relationship with Real Madrid. 

Do you think Gareth Bale should leave Real Madrid? Or is it just time for him to get over the criticism?
