Here are the next possible destinations for Gareth Bale
Will Gareth Bale be a Real Madrid player once football resumes? This is a valid question for many. At the moment, football fixtures have been removed from the calendar across the world in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Bale, who has endured a torrid 12 months at the Bernabeu, could be heading out of the club. Here's more.
Bale featured in just 18 games across competitions in the 2019-20 season before football got suspended. Bale has managed to score just once at the Bernabueu for over a year now. His last goal was in a 2-0 win over Celta Vigo on March 16, 2019. According to reports, Real are looking to offload the Welshman in the summer.
It remains to be seen whether Real get a substantial fee for the 30-year-old or allows him to leave for free as suggested by the Daily Mail. Bale has another two years remaining on his astronomical £15.4m salary. Overall, he has enjoyed a highly successful stint at the Spanish club. In 249 matches, Bale has amassed 105 goals, besides winning numerous titles.
Bale could be tempted to move to Serie A if clubs like Juventus and Inter Milan come calling. He would have to lower his salary demands but will get football at the highest level. Both Juve and Inter are filled with star players. At Juve, Bale could once again play alongside his former Real team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo. Italy looks ideal for him.
MLS and the Chinese Super League could be options for the former Tottenham forward. We could see dialogue open up between his representatives and MLS franchises. Inter Miami and LA Galaxy have already expressed interest in Bale as per Spanish outlet El Desmarque. China was Bale's expected destination in 2019. His move to Jiangsu Suning collapsed at the 11th hour. Things could get rekindled.
