Revealed: Madrid rejected €100m Bale bid from Premier League club last year

The Welshman recently suggested that Madrid blocked his exit last year.

Calderon also says that Bale could leave the club for free this summer.

Speaking about Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid, Ramon Calderon told Talksport: “I know in the last day of the transfer window last year there was an offer from the Premier League.

“They offered €100m [£89.12m] and Real Madrid turned down that offer because they thought Bale would be a player in their side.

“I'm not allowed to say the name, though I do know the name of the club. I think at the end there was a disagreement as Madrid decided not to sell the player, because they thought he was a player who could be used and be in the starting line-up.”

“I think Real Madrid would now be willing to let him go without any transfer fee - that would be the solution.”

Bale recently indicated that he’d consider a potential move to the Premier League if it suited him, but that Madrid are ‘making things difficult’ on his exit.

The Welshman has reportedly given the club an ultimatum to let him leave on his own terms this summer or watch him sit out the rest of his mammoth contract, so it remains to be seen whether we can get rid of the winger anytime soon. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
