Real Madrid send Gareth Bale off with frosty 44-word statement. The Welshman signed a season-long loan deal, seven years after £86m transfer.
Gareth Bale has been given a terse send-off by Real Madrid after the winger completed a season-long loan move to Tottenham on Saturday.
The Spanish club released a statement comprising just 44 words to confirm Bale’s departure, and while he may well return to Madrid next summer, it seems the Welshman’s relationship with his parent club is beyond repair.
Bale won 13 trophies in seven years after arriving at the Bernabeu from Tottenham in 2013, meaning Madrid gave up little over three words in their statement for each trophy won.
The statement read: ‘Real Madrid C. F. and Tottenham Hotspur FC have agreed to the loan of Gareth Bale for next season, until 30 June, 2021.
‘Our club wishes the best of luck to a player who is part of one of the most successful periods of our history.’
