Try-before-they-Bale deal and Premier League winger has transfer message for Chelsea
Former Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon has claimed the Spaniard should send Chelsea target Gareth Bale out on loan.
Now that star man Eden Hazard has officially left the club and signed for Madrid in a deal worth around £115 million, we are lining up a number of possible transfer replacements if their transfer ban gets overturned.
Bale has won four Champions Leagues, La Liga and the Copa del Rey during his six years at Real but is all set for an exit after Zidane admitted that he does not suit the team anymore, and now Calderon has urged the Spaniard to send the Welshman out on-loan this summer, telling the Sky Sports website: “His situation here is very difficult.
“It is clear Zidane has discarded him in his mind. He showed that last season by not having him in the starting line-up. It is very disappointing for a player like him.
“Also the problem is the transfer fee. Real Madrid want to get a lot of money for him but I find that difficult.
“Maybe the best thing for everyone would be a loan. The player could recover his confidence on the field and Real Madrid could see his value rise.
“He wasn’t successful here for many reasons – injuries, also the handicap of the money. When he came we paid more than we did for Cristiano [Ronaldo].
“People thought he should be better than Cristiano but that is very difficult.”
Meanwhile, Ryan Fraser has admitted he is now likely to remain at Bournemouth for another year.
We will be in the market for a Premier League proven winger, and considering Fraser was just behind Eden Hazard in the assist charts in the League last season, he is ready for that step up to the big time.
The Scotland winger’s contract expires next summer so the Cherries were expected to cash in on him, especially as there is real interest in Fraser following his excellent 2018/19 season.
But the 25-year-old has now admitted it is more than likely he will still be a Bournemouth player when the transfer window closes in August.
“The likelihood is I will be at Bournemouth for another year,” said Fraser on the TalkSport website.
“And what will happen, will happen.
“That is all I can really say about it. No one has really spoken to me about it.”[the_ad id=”164″]
