REAL MADRID are open to loaning out winger Gareth Bale next season in order to free up space in the squad, Spanish reports claim.
It was revealed Real managing director José Ángel Sánchez and Bale’s agents, Jonathan Barnett and Luis Alonso, met in Madrid and broke the news the Welshman is not in manager Zinedine Zidane’s plans for next season.
Desperate to free up space for a summer overhaul Marca claim Real chiefs are now willing to let Bale go out on loan next season.
It comes after no offers for the Welshman have been made, despite interest from Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
Prem clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City are said to have shown no interest in acquiring the ex-Tottenham star.
It has led to Real considering loaning out Bale with the option to purchase, similar to what they offered Bayern Munich in 2017 for James Rodriguez.
The German giants signed Rodriguez on a two-year loan paying Real £6m for the Columbian each season with the option to make the deal permanent for £36m.

Real believe this deal is the only feasible option for Bale due to his £500,000-a-week wages and their value of a £150m price tag.
It is understood Bale is content with life in Madrid with his family, while he also ranks as the club’s highest paid player.
However, having not won a La Liga title in two years manager Zidane is looking to flog up to £430million worth of players.
