DC United are trying to bring Gareth Bale to Major League Soccer after the European season. The striker wants to go to a club aiming for the World Cup later this year.
He says DC United plan to give Bale that opportunity Washington PostNegotiations between Paul’s entourage and the American club have been going on for months. In recent weeks, the DC United Club has made an effort to turn Pele into the highest paid player in history. Currently, Wayne Rooney has a club record of 4.6 million euros a year.
Bale has been under contract with Real Madrid since 2013, where he is one of the highest earners. In Madrid, however, he is rarely used. He was credited to Tottenham Hotspur last season, and this season he has made just seven appearances in all competitions.
Bale will end his contract after this season, and he wants to move to a club that can do a few minutes towards the World Cup in Qatar. It remains to be seen whether Wales will play in the final: First, Ukraine or Scotland will have to decide on the play-offs final.
