REVEAL: Gareth Bale almost become... Chinese football's legend

Recently, Gareth Bale's representative shared that the Wales star almost moved to China in the 2019 summer transfer window.

"Bale wants to create heritage. He wants to take Chinese football up and really believes he can do it. Bale has won major titles many times. Now, he wants to be known as the best player to stick with Chinese football. Money is also an important factor because it will turn Bale into the highest-paid player in the world", Jonathan Barnett, Bale's representative told media.

"He received an offer that was difficult to refuse. Bale never wanted to move to another club, but China made him interested. However, Real Madrid did not let him go. They (the Chinese team) don't pay what Real wants", Barnett added.

In the winter transfer period last year, the name Gareth Bale once again consumed the media. Many sources believe that he will return to England to play for Man United or Tottenham Hotspur. However, Barnett denies this.

"That could not happen. Bale loves life in Madrid, his family speaks Spanish. Now, he is very happy and is one of the best players in the world. Real will not sell Bale, they show respect to him", Barnett said.

Currently, the contract between Bale and Real Madrid is valid until the summer of 2022. It is likely that the Welsh player will stick with "Los Blancos" until his contract expires.
