Real Madrid have signed Ferland Mendy, Luka Jovic and now Eden Hazard and questions continue rising about what should the club do with Gareth Bale. Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes they should loan the Welsh star to another club.

“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”, Calderon said and continued.

“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].”
