Even though he is going into his third season with Real Madrid, it seems that club’s fans are still unsold on Gareth Bale.
Having enjoyed a phenomenally successful first year, the Welshman struggled to reach the same heights last term, and fell foul of the boos and jeers of the Madridistas.
He would often look lost out on the pitch, and at one point his agent even complained that his teammates weren’t passing him the ball enough.
But with the La Liga season set to kick off, Bale is back and ready to right the wrongs of the previous campaign under new boss Rafa Benitez, however, the fans don’t quite feel the same way.
Given how impressively Isco has performed during pre-season, a majority of Real Madrid fans would prefer to see him in the starting XI over Bale, according to this survey.
With Manchester United reportedly keen to make another approach for his signature before the transfer window draws to a close, is Bale just wasting his time in Madrid?
