Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes Gareth Bale could be sent out on loan by the La Liga giants this summer.

The Welsh wizard, who is on a £350,000-a-week contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, has been frozen out by coach Zinedine Zidane and has not featured for Madrid since the end of June.

Bale refused to be a part of the travelling squad for Real Madrid’s Champions League defeat to Manchester City and Calderon believes that La Liga could release the wantaway winger on a temporary deal.

Calderon told BBC Sport: ‘We have done that before. It wouldn’t surprise me if they let him go on loan and paid part of the salary.

‘It’s a pity to see a player like him in the stands. I think his skill and talent has not gone, he is still a good player who could be playing at a high level in any team in the world.

‘Therefore I think they will have to find a solution to end this agony for the sake of both sides.

‘If he doesn’t want to reduce his salary, which would be understandable, they will have to find another way to finish this situation.’

Bale has endured a toxic relationship with Zidane, who guided Madrid to the La Liga title this season, with the club’s supporters becoming increasingly angry with the winger’s conduct off-the-field.

The Welsh international was captured posing with a banner saying, ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid. In That Order’ while on international duty.

This week, the 31-year-old was spotted by Spanish TV on a golf course on the same day Madrid were playing Manchester City in the Champions League.

Bale was close to leaving Madrid last summer, when the Spanish giants accepted a bid from Chinese club Jiangsu Suning.

But the deal, which would have reportedly seen the winger earn £1million-a-week, was blocked by Zidane and Madrid.

Bale has also been linked with a move to former side Tottenham Hotspur, who he joined Madrid from back in 2014.

Calderon claims Spurs boss Jose Mourinho would be keen to bring Bale to White Hart Lane. 

The former Madrid president said last November: ‘It’s true that Mourinho likes the player. He said that in 2017 when he tried to sign (him) for Manchester United and Real Madrid decided to extend the contract of Gareth Bale.

‘I remember him saying “if he is by the exit door, I will be waiting on the other side”, so maybe it’s a solution.’
