Former Tottenham star, Gareth Bale, has revealed that he would eventually be interested in a move to Major League Soccer in America.
Bale has been linked with a return to Spurs almost every transfer window for the past few years and last January was no different.
Daniel Levy reportedly made a big effort to bring the winger back to North London in the final days of the January transfer window (Daily Mail) but he once again ended up staying put at Los Blancos.
Although Zinedine Zidane has reportedly told the Madrid board to sell the Welshman as he doesn’t see him as a part of his plans (Sport), Los Blancos are struggling to move the former Spurs star on due to his substantial £350,000-per-week wages (Express).
The 31-year-old’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has already ruled out the possibility of the winger returning to Spurs (AS).
However, Bale has now seemingly opened the door to a move to the MLS by talking about how much the United States league has grown in recent years.
“When we come over and play in pre-season the games are difficult…it’s a league that’s on the up and still rising.
“A lot more players want to come to America now. I would definitely be interested in it.”

Having won all there is to win in his career, it doesn’t sound like Bale is too motivated to prove himself again in the Premier League. I believe he wants a big payday in the MLS or in China. Spurs fans who still have some lingering hope that he will return one day should come to the realisation that it is not going to happen.
