Gareth Bale may be set for a move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning where he could earn £1m a week
Gareth Bale’s representatives are in talks with Chinese side Jiangsu Suning about a deal which could see the Welshman earn £1m a week.
Daily Week Sports News understands negotiations are progressing and there is still some work to do, but Jiangsu Suning are increasingly confident they can convince Bale to sign.
The 30-year-old has been told he can leave Real Madrid, even though he has three years left on his £600,000-a-week contract.
However, any deal will have to be concluded by Wednesday as that is when the Chinese window closes.
On Tuesday, former Shanghai SIPG director Mads Davidsen said Bale could move to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning
Another hurdle is that all Chinese clubs have to pay 100 per cent transfer tax on foreign signings, meaning Jiangsu Suning will effectively have to pay double to secure Bale’s services.
All proceeds from this transfer tax then goes towards youth development in the country.
