It's sweet and sour Gareth!

It would be the most expensive Chinese takeaway in the history of the World

Real Madrid has taken leave of its senses. It has a depreciating and unused asset that will cost about £90 million over three years and miraculously has a chance to offload it and save all that money. Then it rescinds the deal because there is no transfer fee! Despite, yesterday, being happy with the deal.

There has to be something that is not public. Nobody is that stupid.

So the victim remains because someone backed off.

*Puts on sunglasses*

Sounds like they decided to bail.

Real Madrid may just see it as - Bale is on 600k a week with them so great if a Chinese club pays for that. But if the Chinese club are going to actually pay Bale 1mil a week, then Real Madrid would rather see some of that value as a transfer fee to the club, rather than further lining Bale's pockets?

As a crude number, 400k x 3 years = £60mil that Real Madrid could take as a transfer fee. It's obviously more complicated since China has different taxes on transfers.

From the beeb:

Chinese state media have reported that any chance of Gareth Bale joining Jiangsu Suning is definitely over after the Chinese club instead signed Ivan Santini from Anderlecht on Monday.

The Chinese Super League limits the number of foreign players each team can have and Jiangsu reached their quota by signing the Croatian striker.

The Chinese transfer window closes on Wednesday.

China charges very high taxes on transfer fees and, if it as you suggest, Real Madrid is biting its own nose off to spite its face. It should just be happy to offload and save the dosh, using it to pay their next overpaid galactico.

I'm wondering if the 3-7 defeat to Atletico means that Zidane is likely to be on his way and that Bale is wanted after all.

As a side note, I'm quite enjoying Barca/Real Madrid being so dysfunctional (moreso than usual).

in a sense I'm glad RM are not selling him, it means they have less money to buy players that English sides are interested in.

What about the smart money?
Why did you link a Donald Trump video in your post? If Bale has real interest in playing on the pitch, he goes back to England, if he rather wants to begin a second career in golf, Madrid is still the better place.

Gareth was linked to Chinese teams a couple of times.

I don't follow the football news at the moment. China is still better than sitting on the substitution bench/in the stadium in Madrid.

He is staying to get paid off and will then decide his own future. Doubt he would come back to EPL, so its his choice.

Bale - past caring and willing to be stubborn to prove a point
Zidane - decided he doesn't want Bale a long time ago and trying to force a move to get rid
Perez - not sure what the Real Madrid hierachy were thinking with blocking the move to China last summer but maybe they want to prove a point by making Bale sit out his contract on the bench / excluded from the squad? A very expensive choice..

Have to agree with Zer here (still given how old thread is).

Bale is not going to become a pundit and unlikely he'll be a top coach. Already won all a Welshman will ever win. With time ticking away why not milk a club where there's mutual dislike?

Yeah if you really wanted to play football he would accept he obvious fact that he's got more than enough money (you could live on the interest) so he could take a wage cut and go and play for somebody else, but the fire's obviously gone.

Sad to see his talent not being used. Perhaps one last hurrah for Wales next summer?
