Gareth Bale scores a hat-trick as Wales thrash China 6-0 at China Cup

Real Madrid have accepted a €130million bid for Gareth Bale from a Chinese Super League club, according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol on Wednesday.

Diario Gol, who often make outlandish claims, reported that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was keen to let the winger leave the club.

However, Bale, whose contract will be expired in 2022, told the club he would only consider leaving Madrid for another major European side.

Bale joined Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2013 and was seen as the successor to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Although enjoying major success at the Bernabeu, the 28-year-old forward has endured a mixed spell with the La Liga giants due to several injuries.

Until now, Bale has scored 79 goals and provided 58 assists in 179 appearances in all competitions for the Los Blancos.

Recently, he has been in China for the international friendly tournament named China Cup, which is held in Nanning.

In the first match against hosts China on Thursday, Bale scored a hat-trick as his side beat Marcello Lippi’s China team 6-0.

With this triple, the Real Madrid superstar overtakes Ian Rush as Wales’s all-time top goalscorer.
