Why Gareth Bale is scared to leave Real Madrid despite £1m-per-week China offer | Football | Sport

That’s according to former Arsenal player Stewart Robson. 

Gareth Bale is expected to leave Madrid this summer amidst a bitter feud with Zidane.

After the winger was left out of Madrid’s side to face Bayern Munich on Saturday night, the manager claimed that it was because he had refused to play due to the growing uncertainty over his future. 

But Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, hit back and said his client won’t be forced into leaving the Spanish giants. 

He claimed that Zidane had disrespected Bale, and that if he did leave, it would be his own decision to do so other than the manager’s.

It has been reported that the star has been offered a mammoth £1million-per-week deal to swap Spain for China, with Chinese Super League team Beijing Guoan rumoured to be interested.

That would make him the highest-paid player in the world by some stretch, and would nearly double his already-hefty £600,000-per-week.

Barnett suggested Bale could still refuse to leave Madrid and see out the final three years of his deal, regardless of whether he plays or not.

And Robson has a theory as to why, claiming that it would be because the star is scared that he isn’t the same electric player that he used to be.

“I think Gareth Bale could be frightened to move on,” he said on ESPN FC.

“Frightened because he’s lost a bit of pace, and his one attribute was his pace.

“If he goes anywhere else, as we’ve seen from the Wales performances as of late, he’s not the same player. 

“He might be frightened that if he goes to another team in England or a club in Spain, or goes to PSG, he can’t prove that he’s that great player again.

“He’s lost his confidence, he’s frightened to go and play elsewhere.

“So he’s happy to stay at Real Madrid on the subs bench, or not even in the squad, and carry on getting his money and sends his career that way. 

“That’s why I don’t think he’s going to go this summer, because he’s frightened that he’s not the same player and he could be exposed.”
