Jiangsu Suning close the door on Bale by signing Santini

29 Jul 2019

Gareth Bale won’t be joining Jiangsu Suning this summer as the Chinese club’s attention has turned away from the Welshman by wrapping up a deal for Ivan Santini.

The Croatian’s arrival closes the door to Bale and with their squad now complete the No.11 must find a new solution to his situation in the Spanish capital.

There appear to be two options for the player now. First is that he finds another club in China who are willing to pay him the stratospheric sum that Jonathan Barnett had negotiated with Suning, or else he has to find another option in the Premier League before their window closes in ten days.

Tottenham could be interested as long as they can find a formula to pay his salary of no less than 15 million euros.

But beyond the month-old reports of Spurs’ interest, there’s no news of English interest in Madrid.

His own dream remains to be Manchester United, with whom Madrid will speak in the coming days about the signing of Paul Pogba.
