Gareth Bale Planning To Run Down Real Madrid Contract And Earn £60 Million

Gareth Bale Planning To Run Down Real Madrid Contract And Earn £60 Million

Gareth Bale has no intention of leaving Real Madrid and plans to run down his contract at a costly price for Los Blancos.

Despite showing absolutely no care for the club in recent weeks, from pretending to fall asleep on the bench to being filmed playing golf on after asking not to play against Manchester City in the Champions League, Bale wishes to stick around for the foreseeable future.

The Sun say his plan is to see out the remaining two years on his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, which will reportedly see him earn a massive £60 million due to his handsome pay packet and bonus payments.

Bale is doing this to get back at his employers for blocking his proposed move to the Chinese Super League.

Back in 2019, the Welshman looked poised to sign for Jiangsu Suning on a €22 million-a-year contract before Real pulled the plug and the deal fell through at the last second.

It's said the former Spurs star hasn't forgiven Real for not allowing the move and he is willing to run down his contract even if it means he doesn't take to the pitch.

The only way he would leave would be if Real paid up his contract in full, though that's incredibly unlikely at this stage.

Since joining Real in what was a world-record move in 2013, Bale has 105 goals and 13 trophies to show for his efforts yet his rapport with Madridstas is not particularly great

Much to his frustration, he's been whistled by the Los Blancos faithful on a number of occasions during his time in the Spanish capital.

It happened in the El Clasico defeat to Barcelona in March 2019 when he was replaced by Marco Asensio on the hour mark, while a separate incident this term saw him jeered by 80,000 fans as he entered the fray against Real Sociedad in November - not too long after holding the infamous ' 'Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order,' flag on international duty.
