Will Real get rid of unwanted stars? Millions clink from a surprising applicant from the Islands
Striker Gareth Bale's never-ending saga about his controversial work at Real Madrid could come to an end in the summer. According to the British Daily Mail, the Welsh footballer will be a transfer priority for the new owner of Newcastle United, Saudi Prince Mohamed bin Salman and his investment group PIF. The supposedly huge amount of money is ready for that. But it has one catch.
According to island media sources, the potential new owner of Newcastle has a fabulous amount ready for reinforcements - 300 million pounds . The main transfer targets are to include the stellar striker of the White Ballet Gareth Bale, for whom oil magnates should be willing to pay up to 53 million pounds.
The 30-year-old native of Cardiff has been in Real Madrid since 2013. However, his work at Los Blancos is accompanied by scandals and there have been several speculations about his departure. For the time being, it has always been thwarted by the financial demands of both Real and footballers. Which might not be such a problem for potential Middle Eastern owners.
The problem, however, is the controversy associated with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Therefore, the sale of Newcastle, which at the beginning of the negotiations seemed like a done deal, soon stalled. Several human rights organizations, and not only them, opposed the acquisition of the traditional island club into the hands of the most powerful man in the Arabian Peninsula.
The takeover is also prevented by the largest foreign partner of the English Premier League, the Qatari beIN Sports, which is leading a long-standing dispute with the Saudi company beoutQ over the league's broadcasting rights. Prince Salmán is also associated with the pirate beoutQ
But even the halt to the sale of Newcastle would not mean the end of Gareth Bale's hopes for his eventual departure from Madrid. According to the Spanish server FourFourTwo, two other big players are interested in the services of a Welsh footballer. Legendary David Beckham would reportedly be able to imagine him in his new Inter Miami team.
