Real Madrid are growing increasingly confident they can make money from selling Gareth Bale if he continues his current upturn in form for Tottenham.

That’s according to Defensa Central, who say the Spanish club ‘regains confidence’ in their ability to sell the Welshman.

Bale, of course, is currently on loan at Tottenham, having returned to his former club in the summer after becoming public enemy number one at the Bernabeu.

His return has not been as successful as both he and Spurs would have hoped, though, with the player struggling for form and fitness for much of the campaign.

That’s led to concerns back in Spain that they won’t be able to ship him out in the summer, with their asking price and Bale’s wage demands both big barriers to a deal.

However, Bale has enjoyed something of a resurgence of late, starring in the Europa League and in the recent 2-1 defeat to West Ham.

That is something Real Madrid have taken note of, and they are ‘optimistic’ about the forward and ‘hope to cash in’ come the summer, with a sale ‘more than obvious’ at this point.

Where they can sell him remains to be seen, but it is claimed the Spanish giants are now willing to accept a ‘modest price’ to get rid of the player.

A permanent move to Tottenham looks unlikely if Jose Mourinho remains in charge, with the Portuguese boss having grown tired of the forward, and it stated he ‘does not want him in his team next season’.

DC state that he has spoken to Florentino Perez about Bale and told him he is ‘sick to death’ of him and is ‘regretting’ sanctioning the loan move in the first place.

He’s also claimed that he understands everything that Zidane has said and thought about him, a further indication he is not interested in signing him permanently if he has the choice.
