GARETH BALE is now worth just £34million with Philippe Coutinho and Thomas Lemar also seeing their transfer market value massively slashed.
The Real Madrid star, 30, has seen his value slashed in HALF after being frozen out under Zinedine Zidane.
Bale has been thrown into action at times this season, but only due to Los Blancos being hit by a number of injury crises this term.
The Welshman’s summer was shrouded in transfer speculation as his onrunning rift with Zidane raged on.
And his future looked even more in doubt after he celebrated his nation qualifying for Euro 2020 with a flag captioned: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”
Thanks to his controversy-ridden year – which included leaving the stadium midway through a game TWICE – Transfermarkt now value him at just £34m, down from £68m a year ago.
But he is not the biggest loser, with former Liverpool star Coutinho holding that very-unwanted honour.
The Barcelona flop, now on loan at Bayern Munich has seen his transfer cost cut by £60m – also a 50 per cent reduction.
The “Little Magician” has found his feet on loan in Germany, scoring seven times in 22 games this season, including a hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Werder Bremen, while showing flashes of his former brilliance on the ball.
But that still hasn’t saved his value in the transfer market with his next permanent move surely not far off.
Elsewhere, Lemar – once a mega-money target for Liverpool and Arsenal – is a big faller, now quoted at just £25m, down from £50m.
Bale’s Real pal Marcelo has seen £43m cut from his market valuation – now a snip at just £17m – with another Los Blancos star, Marco Asensio, halved to just £34m amidst his injury woes.
Barcelona pair Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets have both lost £34m of their value – now worth £21m and £30m respectively.
Edinson Cavani, Samuel Umtiti and Nabil Fekir are all also down £25m in the latest figures.
