Gareth Bale’s move to Barcelona is set to take place before the weekend
The move that has shocked Spanish football as it was announced on Spanish media channels last night (Monday 2 August), according to sources in Madrid, is expected to be completed before the weekend.
Sources have confirmed that the Los Blancos have accepted the undisclosed fee between Real Madrid & Barcelona.
All that remains to be completed this morning are personal terms with the Welsh winger and a full medical.
Football fans between the clubs are still reeling at last nights breaking news.
It’s not often Spanish football fans are shocked, but as they awake this morning after last nights revelations, many are still shaking their heads in disbelief.
Real Madrid fans only have themselves to blame, say Barca supporters, as the Wales Captain prepares to move to Catalonia.
“They never treated him well; the Real fans fell out of love with him because of Zidane and Bale hit back when he displayed that flag.
“The flag was retaliation to the abuse he had received in Madrid – which was wrong,” said Barca fan Anotonio Lopez.
Although Real fans in the Spanish capital don’t seem too upset with the move, ” We had the best out of him, but he would not get in our side now – he’s too old – it doesn’t bother me him leaving even if it is to them, I don’t think there will be a big outcry this time round” says José Rodriguez a Real Madrid season ticket holder of 14 years.
Bale, who has known about the potential move for several months, even going as far as saying on British TV his next move would cause chaos – is expected to arrive in Barcelona with his management team shortly to finalise terms.
One way or another, as Bale moves to Barcelona if personal terms are agreed, only then shall Spain see if the Madrid fans do care he’s gone to their arch-rivals, a rivalry that runs far deeper than just football.
