Madrid stopped selling Bale's shirt in their store

The assignment of Gareth Bale to Tottenham it is so imminent that Real Madrid stopped selling the Welsh shirt in his online store. On the website of the white club you can select the new elastic bands of all the members of the squad who were also last season and among them was not Bale on Thursday morning. Hours later, the club reacted and Bale 'reappeared' along with the rest of the squad …

Bale has 'disappeared' from the Madrid online store.

The attacker is the only one who had disappeared from the team's virtual store. Odegaard, Lunin and Odriozola, as they do not yet have a number assigned (the full-back will, predictably, remain the 19 that he previously wore) because they have joined the squad this summer, they are not yet among the options to buy, but their cases are obviously different from Bale. Yet another indication that the operation is so on track that can be made official in the next few hours. Madrid and Tottenham negotiate the details of the agreement based above all on the percentages of the very high token of the Welshman that the north London entity will have to assume.

Madrid has been pressing insistently in the last hours for Tottenham to pay the salary in full. A salary that had been costing Madrid around 23,800 euros for every minute played by Bale as a Madrid player.

This is how Madrid's online store looked before the club returned to include Bale's shirt in the template.

Bale's temporary goodbye (the Welshman has a contract until 2022) will produce a small dance of numbers in the squad, with Asensio inheriting the 11. If the Briton returns to Madrid next summer he will have to settle for another number. It happened to James, who went to Bayern when he was wearing the Madrid 10 and when he returned he had to play with the 16 because Modric had kept his number in his absence.
