We earlier reported that Real Madrid’s dressing room was in disarray, following Gareth Bale’s improved contract demand since returning from the European championship.
According to new reports, “a bomb is ready to go off” in the club’s dressing room and that “the detonator is already ticking down” in light of the Welshman’s off-pitch attitude and claim that there may also be issues between returning striker Alvaro Morata and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is keen to see Karim Benzema retain his spot as Madrid’s first-choice striker, while Morata wants to take the spot for himself.
This isn’t the first time we have seen disharmony among the ranks at the Bernabeu, with a similar occurrence happening in 2005, when a split was created between the club’s Spanish and Brazilian players.
Robinho, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and Julio Baptista made up the South American quartet at Madrid in 2005, but divides worsened due to Helguera, Guti and Raul ’not getting on with the Brazilians’.
In spite of the reported unhappiness within the ranks at Madrid, they have made an unbeaten start to the 2016/17 campaign, recording three La Liga wins against Celta Vigo, Real Sociedad and Osasuna to stay on-top of the league.
More details soon.
