Real Madrid have set a price for Gareth Bale following latest injury setback

Football News

When Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid back in 2013, he broke transfer records, moving from Tottenham for £85 million. 

He's now been in Spain for over four years and has a good record of 70 goals in 159 games for his club. 

At times, the trio of Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, which is nicknamed 'BBC', has been unplayable. 

And they've won it all together at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid won La Liga last season for the first time since Bale joined the club in 2013 and the Welshman also has three Champions League winners medals and managed to get his hands on the Copa del Rey in 2014.  

Despite helping them dominate on a domestic and continental level, there's one thing about Bale that has been frustrating Madrid since his move from England. 

Injuries. Since moving to Spain, the 28-year-old has suffered 11 periods on the sideline, which amount to 274 days and 56 missed games in total. 

The worst was an ankle injury picked up in November 2016 that kept him out until February of this year.

And just two days ago, the Spanish club released a statement saying that he's sustained another injury, just days after returning to training. 

This one, according to Madrid, could keep him out for anywhere between two and six weeks. 

It appears that this latest setback is the last straw for the Spanish champions, who may be getting ready to sell the Welsh winger.

According to the Mirror, Los Blancos will be open to listening to offers of £85 million for Bale, which has put Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs on red alert. 

Even with injuries taken into account, the Welshman is one of the best forwards in Europe. Any of those three clubs would surely be interested in bringing him back to England for that fee. 

Because if Bale gets over his latest setback and comes back stronger again, there's no reason he can't rediscover the form he's shown at Madrid when fully fit.
