Gareth Bale Set To Leave Real Madrid For China, Gareth Bale is set to leave Real Madrid to join Chinese club Jiangsu Suning on a three-year deal.
Sources close to Wales’ record goalscorer confirmed reports in Spain that although not yet finalised, a move is “very close.”
Real boss Zinedine Zidane had said Bale, 30, was “very close to leaving” after he was left out of their 3-1 pre-season defeat by Bayern Munich weekend.
Zidane added his exit would be “best for everyone”.
The Welshman came off the bench in Real’s last game to net as they won on penalties after a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the International Champions Cup.
But Frenchman Zidane insisted “nothing had changed” and it could prove to be Bale’s final game for Real.
Bale joined the Spanish club for £85m from Tottenham in 2013 in a world record deal at the time.
