People Think Gareth Bale Was Laughing At Zinedine Zidane At 7-1 Down Against Atletico Madrid
It seem as though Gareth Bale played his final game in Real Madrid colours last night and the Welshman was seen laughing on the pitch at 7-1 down.
Los Blancos ended up being thrashed 7-3 by city rivals Madrid over in New Jersey at the MetLife Stadium, with Diego Costa scoring four times before being shown a straight red card in the second half.
But Bale, who is poised to leave the Santiago Bernabeu imminently, didn't look too disheartened at all.
The Welshman appeared to laugh in the direction of Zinedine Zidane when the cameras panned to him with around 20 minutes remaining and Real losing by an embarrassing scoreline.
Last night, reports from Spain claimed Bale is close to signing for Jiangsu Suning of the Chinese Super League on a €22 million-a-year contract.
MARCA say the Welshman is heading to the Far East on a three-year deal for the next stage of his career, while Matt Law from The Telegraph reports that the 30-year old is to collect over £1 million-a-week after tax if the deal is concluded as expected.
In six years as a Real Madrid player, Bale has scored 102 goals and contributed to 13 trophies. But his relationship with the club's fans hasn't exactly been productive, as has his rapport with Zidane.
Bale's representative Jonathan Barnett calling the Frenchman "a disgrace" following his recent comments about wanting to offload the Southampton youth product.
