Gareth Bale has a mega offer on the table from the Chinese Super League that would see him become the first player in world football to earn £1 million per week.
Bale, who signed for Real in a world-record move in 2013, was left out of the club's pre-season defeat to Bayern Munich and Zinedine Zidane revealed after the game that the club were hoping to offload him imminently.
Beijing Guoan have been made aware of Bale's situation and according to John Cross from The Mirror, the Chinese outfit are not only prepared to give him wages that blow Carlos Tevez's £650,000-a-week Shanghai Shenhua contract out the water, but also make him the highest-paid player in world football by quite a stretch.
The former Spurs man collects a reported £600,000-a-week at the Santiago Bernabeu but would enter a whole new stratosphere with this potential pay packet - which is perfectly affordable for Beijing Guoan, one of the richest clubs in China.

£1m a week in China for Bale if he moves. Unbelievable

Bale also has a slight connection with Guaon as their striker Cedric Bakambu is represented by the Stellar football agency that the Welshman's representative Jonathan Barnett heads up.
Bayern Munich have been linked, while it's also been reported that there is momentum behind the idea of a swap deal between PSG and Real that would say Bale and Neymar head in the opposite direction.
Barnett has hit back at Zidane for his comments about the 30-year old, calling the Frenchman "a disgrace" considering what he has done for Real.
Spurs man Bale has 102 goals, 65 assists and 13 trophies with Los Blancos since joining but has still failed to win over the Madridistas.

Instead of joining his team on the pitch to say good bye to the fans for summer, Gareth Bale heads straight to the changing room :flushed:

He's been jeered during games and recently received abuse from supporters as he made his way into pre-season training at the Valdebebas training complex, while his relationship with Zidane has always been a tad frosty.
Where should Bale move? Sound off in the comments.
