Real Madrid have pulled the plug on a Gareth Bale sensational move to Chinese club, Jiangsu Suning, sister club of Inter Milan.
Bale’s impending switch to Far East Asia is understood to have totally collapsed with the Winger now faced with the prospect of playing for one more season at the Santiago Bernabeu, a report that has left fans of the Wales International frustrated.
iDONSABI.com understand that Bale’s move to Suning – where he was poised to earn over £1million a week, taking him up to the very top of the list of highest paid footballers – has falled down to the dust over demands made by the Spanish giants who are insistent on a transfer fee for the 30 year old.
Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s president is believed to be the mastermind of the block based on the premise that Bale who cost them a world record £85 million from 2013 is too valuable a player to be left to leave the Spanish capital on a cheap.
Florentino has consistently defended the Welsh man and has remained an influential figure in negotiations over the last 48 hours.
Bale’s future under the stead of Zinedine Zidane still looks bleak and unclear after he was told in no clear terms by the French manager to leave.
But Real chiefs and the powers that be at the Bernabeu have thrown themselves into the matter, calling off the move to China and leaving Bale in an uncertain position.
The Chinese league’s transfer window will be shut on Wednesday and the winger is anxiously waiting to see if the deal could be revived, even though many reports think the deal is over.
The Spanish giants decision might have been greatly influenced by the injury to Marco Asensio sometime last week.
If the de does happen, Bale would become the world’s highest paid footballer earning as much as twice his current £600,000-a-week wages at Real Madrid.
