Welshman Gareth Bale stated in an interview that he would definitely be interested in playing for the American Major League Soccer. That’s because he’s not a starter on that weak Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side.
Of course, the Spanish team from the capital is maybe the greatest in the world, but this current Real Madrid side is a joke compared to other ones they’ve had in the recent past.
As Bale is already at the age of 30, the Welshman is with a correct mindset, as he could enjoy a bit of the charming American West Coast, or even considering going to David Beckham’s Miami team to retire in a happy mood at least.
Any MLS club that wishes to sign Bale is likely to have to overcome the huge financial implications of a deal though. Thus, the Bale contract in Madrid ends in 2022 and the Welshman earns almost 30 million euros per year.
Bale spoke to “the Hat-Trick” podcast by ICC, in an episode released on Thursday.
He had the following to say:
“I think the MLS has grown so much over the years. When we play them in the preseason, the games are difficult, the standard is getting much better. Clubs are improving, facilities are improving, stadiums are improving. I think it’s a league that is growing and growing. I think a lot more players want to go to America now and play. I would definitely be interested in it.”
That’s everything an American club would like to listen to, and I think MLS Football has a great potential of growing even more with the current world pandemic, as a lot of European clubs will have to reduce the standards in their squad, and basically to rethink the next season as a whole.
