Inter Cannot Sign Real Madrid Forward Bale Unless Price Tag & Wage Demands Drop

Inter Cannot Sign Real Madrid Forward Bale Unless Price Tag & Wage Demands Drop

Inter will not sign Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale this summer unless the Welsh international’s price tag and wage demands drop significantly, Corriere dello Sport understands.

The Nerazzurri regard Bale as a world-class player and would be delighted to recruit him for the coming season but cannot afford his €15 million per season in wages, nor meet Madrid’s unspecified asking price.

The 29-year-old would only become a serious target for the club if Los Blancos were forced to accept a smaller fee for him later in the summer.

Bale made 29 appearances for Madrid in La Liga last season, scoring eight goals and providing three assists, but is widely expected to leave after being frozen out of the side by returning coach Zinedine Zidane.

Inter’s management met with Suning owner Zhang Jindong in the Spanish capital last weekend to attend the Champions League final, as well as to discuss the club’s transfer plans.

However, there is no sign they laid out a strategy to sign Bale or arranged any meeting with representatives from Real Madrid.
