Modric Wants His Real Madrid Teammate To Stay At The Spanish Capital: Should Zidane Keep Him?

In a recent interview (via the Daily Mail), Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric revealed that he wants his teammate Gareth Bale to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and said, ‘He is an amazing player and very important for the team.

‘He is showing that this season. Hopefully, he will stay this season and the next seasons as well.’

According to a recent report by AS, Bale is a frustrated figure at the Spanish capital and wants to part ways with the Galacticos at the end of this campaign. However, it appears that his teammate Modric wants him to stay and flourish at Madrid in the coming years.

Bale’s Fruitful Start To This Campaign

Despite all his recent troubles, Bale has made a decent start to this campaign after putting in a couple of match-winning displays for Los Blancos in the La Liga. The Welsh wide player has featured in seven matches for the Spanish giants this term, finding the back of the net twice while creating two assists on all fronts.

The former Southampton talent has also played in 79 international matches for the Wales national side while netting 32 goals for his country thus far. The Madrid-born winger has won the UEFA Champions League four times during his Real Madrid career which is nothing short of remarkable.

However, he looks a bit unsettled at the moment, so making a switch away from Spain might be the best move for him at this stage of his playing career. Bale needs to earn more first-team starts if he wants to make the most out of his time left as a football player.

What Does The Wales International Add To Zidane’s Side?

Bale still has a lot of pace to burn in the final third and can beat his marker off the dribble to either get to the by-line or cut inside to fashion a goal-scoring chance for himself. The Welsh speedster can still be a match-winner when he is playing with confidence on the field. However, he needs to figure out a way to overcome his recent injury problems.

Should The Galacticos Retain Bale’s Services Beyond Next Summer?

It is no secret that Zinedine Zidane does not have the best relationship with Bale but it’s high time that the Real Madrid legend swallowed his pride and gave the Welshman a proper chance to be the face of the club. Bale can only reignite his career at Madrid if he gets a chance to put aside his differences with the manager and work alongside him for the betterment of the club.

However, it doesn’t seem like either party are willing to compromise which can only mean that Bale is living on borrowed time at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
