Spanish publication Don Balon believe the bid for Bale which was a massive €130m was accepted by Los Blancos, however, the player himself rejected the move as he doesn’t fancy a move to the Chinese Super League, instead preferring a move to another top league in Europe.

The Welsh international has had a tough time this season with injuries and falling out of favour with Real boss Zidane adding to a long list of frustrations for the player this season.

It seems Real are ready to listen to offers for the player they once spent €100m on and the offer from China would of represented a €30m profit on the 28-year-old winger.

It is likely that if Bale does move on he will most likely end up back in the Premier League where he first started off his career. However, we don’t expect Real to get a bid anywhere near the bid that came in from China. He will most likely leave for the same price they paid for him back in the summer of 2013.

Premier League giants Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and even former club Tottenham have all been linked with a move for the Welsh international with United being clear favourites for his signature.

Reports in the British media suggest that United manager Jose Mourinho is confident in bringing Bale back to the Premier League, however reports also suggest that United are unwilling to pay over €60m for the player which maybe a sticking point in negotiations.

If the deal was to drag on then another club such as rivals Liverpool could come in with a bid. With money still left to spend from the sale of Coutinho they would surely be able to afford the price-tag Real are looking for.
