Gareth Bale, out of contract with Real Madrid, could join the United States next season.
Gareth Bale is expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2021/22 season when his contract ends, so he starts looking for a new club. The Welshman may have found one in Major League Soccer, with interest from DC United. Their interest is serious enough that the USA team are already in talks with Bale’s representatives.
Basel to Washington
This is reported by journalist Steven Goff of the Washington Post, which revealed that the two sides spoke several months ago and are now exchanging proposals. If Bale were to join DC United, he would earn more than Wayne Rooney when he joined the team in 2018. Rooney having scored 23 goals in 48 appearances, DC United are happy with how this experience with an older European player has gone and they would be keen to repeat it.
