Real Madrid have changed manager in this transfer period and automatically, the transfer news and rumours have increased as some media outfits are already making claims that a number of players could already be on their way out of the Bernabeu and the most notable of all is Wales international and Real Madrid superstar winger Gareth Bale.
Some media sources are already claiming that the Welsh winger could be on his way out as the new manager Zinedine Zidane might not want him around much longer.
The Sun is flaming that after former Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez was sacked and replaced by for Madrid player and French Legend Zinedine Zidane earlier this week, Bale is now seriously worried about his future in Madrid with four European super clubs interested in his services and new manager Zidane claiming no one has an automatic place, he may now be considering a move to another club, maybe even this January.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris-Saint Germaine are all very interested in the player but it looks like Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich may have done some covert operations already as he is said to be leading the race to sign the player.
However, even if Abrahimovich has not done anything, the €100m asking price could scare anyone away except Abrahimovich of course.
It remains to be seen then what happens with this player and where he continues his career by the time the transfer window closes.
