Gareth Bale Set To Join Chinese Super League Side Jiangsu Suning On Three-Year Contract

Gareth Bale is set to leave Real Madrid for Jiangsu Suning of the Chinese Super League on a €22 million-a-year contract.

Bale, who signed for Real in a world-record move in 2013, has been made surplus to requirements by manager Zinedine Zidane and MARCA say the Welshman is heading to the Far East on a three-year deal for the next stage of his career.

Bale has 102 goals, 65 assists and 13 trophies with Los Blancos since joining six years back but the overriding feeling is that he never fully won over the Madridistas.

He's been jeered during games and recently received abuse from his own supporters as he made his way into pre-season training at the Valdebebas training complex earlier this month.

And his relationship with Zidane has never been particularly positive, with Bale's representative Jonathan Barnett calling the Frenchman "a disgrace" following his recent comments about the Southampton youth product.

As per Matt Law from The Telegraph, the 30-year old is expected to collect over £1 million-a-week after tax if the deal is concluded as expected.

He will become the second addition to Siung in a matter of days after they signed former Atletico Madrid centre-back Miranda after he agreed to terminate his contract with sister club Inter Milan.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain were linked, while a return to Spurs was briefly mooted, but it's looking as though the Chinese Super League will gain its most high-profile addition yet.

There is no word as of yet whether Jiangsu will be paying a fee to Real for Bale, or whether Los Blancos will release him from his contract to get the deal done.
