High salary unprecedented in football history. According to El Chiringuito, the unnamed club in China is willing to pay £ 1.2 million a week to invite Gareth Bale to compete in the Chinese Super League. The Welsh star can pocket £ 60 million a year and become the highest-paid player in world football history.
Bale’s current salary at Real Madrid is £ 600,000 per week. The player who was born in 1989 did not intend to leave the Bernabeu despite being cut out of the plan by coach Zidane next season.
The highest paid player in the world today is Lionel Messi. Superstar Argentinians pocket 40 million pounds per year. The player right behind is Neymar with an income of £ 31.7 million per year. Cristiano Ronaldo after agreeing to join Juventus also became the highest paid player in Serie A history with £ 27 million per year.
The unnamed member of CLS is willing to double Bale’s salary, but wants to own him for free. This is unlikely when Real want to recoup £ 100 million to recruit Welshman from Tottenham in 2013.
Coach Zidane publicly named Bale out of the plan by declaring after the defeat to Betis in La Liga last season: “With the right to replace people, Bale could not enter the field”.
Meanwhile, the Welsh player is still calm. Bale resolutely sticking to the Bernabeu to enjoy the dream salary. If Real wants to fire him, they will have to pay a huge contract compensation fee.
Los Blancos is trying to push Bale out of the Bernabeu this summer. The former Champions League winner brought the 29-year-old striker as part of a contract to buy Paul Pogba, but was denied by Man Utd.
Gareth Bale joined Real in 2013. He played 231 matches, scored 102 goals and won many titles, including a La Liga championship, 4 Champions League trophies.
