Berbatov compares Bale relationship with Madrid to soap opera
- The Bale saga has been dragging for so long, Berbatov can't remember what episode we are on now.
- Berbatov annoyed at the constant twists in the Welshman's fate.
- When Gareth will finally leave the Bernabeu Dimitar wants to see him at his old club Man United.
According to the recent reports from BBC's La Liga expert Guillem Balague, Gareth Bale has had enough after his exclusion from the Champions League squad against Brugge.
Man United legend Dimitar Berbatov has offered his vision of the situation, amused at the time this kind of rumours about Bale has been repeated over the past few years.
"Gareth Bale has apparently said that he wants to leave Real Madrid," Berbatov said as quoted by Betfair. "It reminds me of a soap opera that has been on for so long, what episode are we on now?
"I want to leave, I want to stay, we don't want you, we want you, we love you, we will play you and s*** like that. In the end, he is probably going to leave at some point, and I would love to see him back in England at Manchester United or Spurs if they could afford him.
"But it's not always good to go back to the place where you were before because you aren't going to be as good as you were before, there is some kind of curse with that."
Berbatov would, of course, be happy to see Gareth joining his old club Man United:
"Manchester United can benefit from his movement, his speed and he knows the Premier League so I think that would be a good move if it happens," the former Bulgaria international concluded.
While the exit rumours donn't sound realistic this time, things have looked much graver back in the summer, when the French boss said "we hope he leaves soon" referring to Bale, a comment which made Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett spit bile: "Zidane is a disgrace - he shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid."
Shortly after the 30-year-old was to join the Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning on a three-year deal but Blancos cancelled the transfer - they wanted to have some money from Gareth's transfer.
The 30-year-old is back with the senior team this season. He scored twice in 7 games, helping Madrid climb up to the top of La Liga table.
