Gareth Bale has reportedly been given hope of a Real Madrid exit this month as the Spanish giants are prepared to subsidise 50% of his £600,000-a-week wages.

Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to pay half of Gareth Bale's hefty salary in an attempt to facilitate his move back to the Premier League.

The Wales international is not part of boss Zinedine Zidane's plans and admitted last week that he will consider any offers from English clubs.

Bale, who made just 20 appearances for Los Blancos last season, returned to the Spanish capital this week to hold talks with the club hierarchy.

According to The Telegraph, Madrid have accepted that the only realistic way to get the outcast forward off their books is to subsidise 50% of his £600,000-a-week wages.

That could tempt Manchester United into making a move for one of their long-term targets, while former club Tottenham Hotspur are also believed to hold an interest.

Bale was close to joining Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning last summer, only for Los Blancos to block the transfer at the eleventh hour.
