Bale ‘fails to reach agreement with Chinese side and will not move to China’

Gareth Bale’s representatives have failed to reach an agreement with Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning, according to reports.

The Welshman looks set to depart Real Madrid this summer after manager Zinedine Zidane publicly stated his desire for Bale’s departure.

Reports in China emerging on Wednesday however declare that the Bale party could not put terms in place with Suning or any other Chinese club, and will not be moving to the cash-rich league as a result.

Speculation had mounting claiming that Bale had agreed a £1million-per-week deal with Suning, with fuelled quickly added to the fire after the Chinese club then followed the forward on their social media accounts.

Local media now however claim Suning will be signing two new foreign players this summer, who are set to be announced imminently, but Bale will not be one of them.
