    "Bale ended last season on the bench as Real endured their poorest domestic campaign in 20 years, with 12 defeats, 68 points and a third-place finish 19 points behind champions Barcelona"

    Spent half the season on the bench.
    Funny that.

    I'd get HR involved

    Not really. Injury prone. Doesnt look anywhere near the player he was in recent Wales games.

    Can Bale speak Spanish. If not after all the years hes been there then its no suprise hes no fan favourite.

    Bayern Munich maybe?

    If he was that good would not a Premiership take him , never mind the fee or wages.

    There is a lot more wrong at RM than just GB.
    No doubt he needs to get out of there as soon as, not just for his own sanity but for his career.

    A player needs to feel wanted in order to priduce his best and its no wonder his performances have suffered, detrimental to the team also.

    I'd imagine there is a fair bit of fencing going on and wouldn't be surprised to see him in the prem soon, Italy seems in vogue again too.

    Perhaps its Bayern on loan like the Rodriguez deal , all these inflated wage scales Madrid apply , seems to effect them in the long run , when looking to off load, this story has been ongoing for a few years now.

    Should be a wage cap across Europe.

    He should never have gone there in the first place. He was bullied by the glares of disdain (and the arrogance) from Ronaldo from day one.
    He was always on a hiding to nothing.

    Agree with this. He did have his chance to shine once Ronaldo went though but I'm not sure what happened for the situation to become as bad as it is now.
    It could have been his injuries but his ambivalence on learning the lingo or just personality clashes were things he could control.

    He has made a mint and won a lot of trophies but I suspect, no matter what he says publicly, he will look back at his time there with some regret.

    One thing is for sure though, he needs to get off his arse, take the wage cut and get the hell out of there. He still has plenty to offer and has nothing to prove.

    He needs to leave this summer but I don’t think he will have any regrets about joining Madrid. He has won the Champions League more times than any other British player. He has won the League and Cup and scored many wonderful goals. History will be kind in decades to come for his time in Madrid.

    Scored champions league winners at possibly the biggest club in the world. Absolutely this, no reason to have regrets.

    No argument about him having any regrets regarding him joining RM.
    There would have to be a damn good reason to turn down a move to the biggest club in the world.

    I'm talking about regretting some of the things off the field that I mentioned, he will think perhaps he could have handled differently.

    You don't think that in retrospect he might have regretted not learning the language sufficiently? Had he done that, he would have been able to bond better with his team-mates and expressed himself in media interviews, that way the fans could have got to know him better.

    A great move for him but now looks as if its time to move to where he can get regular football.

    It's like the old George Best story of him being in a hotel room with Miss World on his left, a bottle of vintage champagne on his right, and the bed is covered in cash, when the waiter blurts out "Where did it all go wrong, Mr Best?"

    Well he was injury prone all through the Euro qualifiers which he almost single handily got us through, the form of his life no doubt. Some say he never fully recovered from that and his exploits with Madrid that season. His recent form and general happiness can no doubt be put down to being forced out of Madrid. It’s going to cost zidane a fortune to shift him on for them, he still has 3 years left.

    Yes maybe but to be honest I wasn't delving that deep just about his choice of club.

    How long was he there,bit strange ??

    ""How long does it take to become fluent in Spanish?

    Three Months. If you're moving to a Spanish-speaking country, you can expect to be relatively fluent within three months if you continue to practice, and listen to and speak with native Spanish speakers.

    I don't see him regretting the decision one bit. Money and trophies while playing for the biggest club in the world.

    I'd imagine he may wish he did a few things differently along the way but there are few who wouldn't.

    Not many Welshman have achieved the same perhaps John Charles ,I 'm guessing unlike John there won't the be a Bale stature outside the Madrid stadium , his goals in that final were something else.

    Re: Bale close to leaving Real Madrid.

    There's a chance that we've seen the best from Bale. The injuries he sustains are muscle strains i believe? They're sometimes caused by a players style and build. Bale is an Athlete, he's like a 200m runner, it could be because of that accelaration that he keeps getting these injuries and that could play on his mind when he is in a position to run in the way that he does. I hope that we see the Bale of old, although i have my reservations, i don't think that he'll be able to sustain the way he plays, especially with the injuries that he gets. Michael Owen relied on 20-30 yard bursts of pace but suffered terible injuries that were down to his running, he became conscious of this and stopped making those runs, in short he was never the same player.
