    Feel like it’s China or staying at Madrid who clearly don’t want him.

    Just don’t see any club in Europe really wanting him. Injury prone, would cost a fair amount, massive wages and he’s now 30.

    He’s earning 600k a week just now playing for an elite club. He’d earn not much less playing for another elite club in Europe.

    He’s choosing to curtail his career at the top for money. That’ll be his legacy. He’s a poorly advised idiot.

    To be fair, unless he's absolutely desperate to win the EPL, Bundesliga or Serie A then there's no reason to stop him going there. I think he'll end up back in England after this and still pick up a hefty wage till he retire's.

    Well, aye, being absolute desperate to win things does tend to be what most footballers want.

    Footballers with a Champions mindset.

    He's won La Liga, and the Champions League how many times ?

    He’ll go to China for a year, make an easy £40m-£50m, then head to England next season I reckon.

    Bale's already semi-retired. He happpened to win some CL's as an average performer for Madrid. He wasn't even Wales best player in the Euros. From his team mates comments he does the bare minimum yet has the gall to demand he is started after 15 minutes of a CL where he scored some great goals. I can understand why Zidane would take a dislike to him.
    He comes across as lazy, a bit thick and definitely spoilt. Like you say - his agent has no doubt led him up the garden path.

    Being a winner of a trophy doesn't make you the reason for it happening.
    Ex-Hun goalkeeper Charbonnier has a World Cup winners medal. Nuff said.

    So that’s how a players career should go? Win some trophies then * of to a footballing backwater for money at what should be your peak?

    Amazing to watch someone's head inflate at such an exponential rate over the last few years. Gareth Bale is an *.

    Well if that's what he wants, he's hardly won * all. He's already achieved more than most players ever will and would be a hard decision to knock back £1m a week no matter how much you already have.

    He could go to England, earn far less and win * all.

    He still has the medal. Do you want think he should stay at Real Madrid and score a hat-trick in a CL final so he's the reason they won it ? Nonsense.

    The fact you can’t see the issue with choosing a * team in a * league where you can win * competitions for money is absolutely everything that’s wrong with football.

    Chasing a bank balance has become normalised over immortality for achievements.

    Does he have other options?
