Former Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon has said that Gareth Bale must be sent out on loan this summer as such a deal will suit all parties. Bale struggled for form this past season and it is widely believed that he is now surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It is believed that Bale is no longer a target of Manchester United.
“His situation here is very difficult,” said Calderon. “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.”
