Gareth Bale has reportedly been tabled a staggering £1 million-a-week offer by Beijing Guoan as he gets set to leave Real Madrid this summer.
If the report by The Sun is to be believed, Gareth Bale has been given an offer to become the highest paid footballer in the world. Chinese Super League outfit Beijing Guoan are willing to hand the Real Madrid outcast an eye watering £1 million-a-week contract, which would eclipse Lionel Messi’s earnings at Barcelona.
It has been such a roller coaster of a ride for Bale at Real Madrid. From scoring some of the most important goals in the club’s history to becoming a peripheral figure, the Welshman has seen it all in a stint that has also been severely hampered by injuries.
Last season, in particular, was the one that has brought the 30-year-old the closest he has ever been to the exit door at the Bernabeu. But, an overall record of 102 goals and 65 assists in 231 outings for Real Madrid is one that Bale can be proud of, especially when you consider the important strikes in the finals of several competitions.
However, after six years with Los Blancos, with whom he has amassed 13 trophies, Bale is now set to bid goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu faithfuls, with whom he has always had a l0ve-hate relationship. Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Real Madrid are working on the exit of the player, whose departure could now be sealed quickly.
The likes of Tottenham, PSG and Bayern Munich are being linked with the struggling Welshman. But, Chinese Super League outfit have now emerged as the dark horses, with a staggering contract on offer for the soon-to-depart Real Madrid superstar.
Beijing Guoan have tabled an astonishing deal that would see Bale pocket £1 million per year, with the earnings being tax free. If Bale reaches an agreement with the Chinese club over the said deal, he would be the first player to break the £1 million barrier and naturally become the highest paid footballer in the world.
Zidane has already clarified that Real Madrid are in talks with Bale’s next club, although the identity of this club remains unclear. But, if he were to make the move to the cash-rich Beijing Guoan, chances are the nature of the game in the Chinese Super League could help him resurrect his faltering career.
For now, all that remains clear is the fact that Gareth Bale’s time at Real Madrid will come to an end this summer. It now remains to be seen if the Welsh superstar takes up Beijing Guoan’s £1 million-a-week offer, or if some other club ends up securing his services.
