Gareth Bale could finally leave Spanish giants Real Madrid as reports have it that the club is ready to cut his transfer fee so as to get him off their wage bill, Mirror reports.
Bale was on the verge of making a record breaking move to China last summer, but the deal was halted at the final stages by the Spanish club and since then it has been a tough time for the Welshman.
Reports from Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claim that a figure around £22million has been placed on the 31-year-old’s head.

Premier League club Everton paid a similar amount to snap up James Rodriguez which means the price tag on Bale would attract several clubs.
Although his personal terms could still be a problem, the player is also willing to reduce his asking price as he is desperate to leave the Spanish club.
Now Manchester United are on standby monitoring the player’s situation, but the Red Devils have their eyes gazed on Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.
It was however gathered that an unnamed Premier League club tendered £89million for Bale last summer, but Los Blancos rejected the deal hoping the player would be part of their season.
"I tried to leave last year and they blocked everything at the last second," Bale told Sky Sports. "It was a project I was excited for but it didn't materialise.
"There have been other instances where we have tried to go but the club won't allow it or they have done something.
"So I guess it is for the club (to answer about what will happen). What can I say? I want to play football. I am still motivated to play football so I guess it is on the club really. I can't do anything, they are in control of everything."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona chiefs have reportedly made it clear to new coach Ronald Koeman that they will prefer to sign Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara this summer and not Liverpool's Wijnaldum.
Since he replaced Setien at the Camp Nou, Ronald Koeman is trying to rebuild Barcelona team so as for them to do well in the coming Spanish La Liga season.
The Dutchman is said to be interested in Liverpool star Wijnaldum considering the fact that he has knew the player for years.
