In his first pre-season match, playing for Real Madrid Gareth Bale managed to score. Despite this positive thing, the player’s future at Real Madrid is still uncertain.
At half-time, the player came off the bench to shoot a goal as his team won on penalties following a 2–2 draw with Arsenal in the International Champions Cup.
Zinedine Zidane, the team’s coach told after the match that he’s fully satisfied with Bale’s performance in the game. However, the coach added that the overall situation with the player is still tough. The coach drew attention to the fact that Gareth Bale has never been so close to breaking up with the club. At the same time, his probable exit can be a good thing for the team especially considering the player’s recent refusal to face off with Bayern Munich. It’s currently unclear how long the player is going to stay with them.
Over the summer, the player has been linked with several football clubs. For example, he considered an offer from the Chinese Super League that could potentially bring him $1,25m a week.
