Real Madrid should loan Bale out, says Calderon

Real Madrid should loan Bale out, says Calderon

Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez will be a part of the extravaganza, while the presence of legendary former Real goalkeeper Iker Casillas is unconfirmed following his heart attack recently.

But his lofty wages - reportedly as high as £350,000 a week - mean few clubs will likely be able to afford the Wales star.

Real have already brought in Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy, Eder Militao and Rodrygo this summer, and have been linked to a host of other names as Zidane looks to rebuild the Spanish giants following a dismal campaign.

It is a sad decline considering how the duo were arguably the faces of Real Madrid in their UEFA Champions League dominance over the last half decade.

No official fee has been released for the price of Jovic's transfer to Madrid from German side Eintracht Frankfurt, but media reports have claimed it to be in the region of €60 million (Dh250m).

It is thought Bale earns more than £500,000 a week at Real Madrid, adding another financial hurdle to a deal United have no interest in pursuing.

"Maybe the best thing for everyone would be a loan".

The England global would cost in excess of £80m, which would make him the most expensive defender in history, surpassing the £75m Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk in January 2018.

Chelsea finally cashed in on their star man with Los Blancos forking out £130m for the talented Belgian.

"I've not had a chance to talk to any Madrid players yet".

"He added: "[Hazard's] a fantastic player but Cristiano is unique.

"Hazard is very talented and skilful, he's proven that in the strongest championship in the world, which is the Premier League".
