Gareth Bale transfer news: Man Utd, Tottenham and Newcastle trail new ODDS-ON favourites after huge price drop overnight

May 30, 2022

GARETH BALE is leaving Real Madrid — and Betfair think he's heading back to the UK with Cardiff.

Bale collected a winners medal after Saturday's Champions League success over Liverpool at the Stade de France in Paris.

And that was undoubtedly his last action for Los Blancos after agent Jonathan Barnett confirmed his client would leave the Bernabeu after a turbulent eight-year spell.

The 32-year-old has barely featured this season, making just four starts and three substitute appearances in all competitions.

His departure has been inevitable for months given his contract expires in June.

However, a future in football or early retirement hinges on whether or not Wales qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Barnett recently told Portuguese outlet Record: "Gareth is leaving Real Madrid, but we have to wait for what Wales do. Is it more likely to return to England? I think so, but we'll have to wait and see if Wales qualify."

Bale joined Real Madrid from Tottenham in September 2013 for a then world record £85.3million deal.

But now available for free — there's no shortage of contenders for his signature.

Bookmakers Betfair are convinced that he's heading back to his native Wales with Championship side Cardiff, whose odds have been slashed from 15/8 to 3/10.

A move Stateside with any MLS side are offered at 6/1, while a sensational return to Tottenham is available at 9/1, with Newcastle offered at 11/1.

He could potentially join compatriot Aaron Ramsey at Rangers (16/1), while Inter Milan, Celtic, Juventus, Manchester United and Villarreal are all locked together at 20s.

Promoted Nottingham Forest have also entered the betting market at 20/1 as Steve Cooper looks to bolster his ranks ahead of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.

Bale was supposedly offered to Atletico Madrid in a meeting between his representatives and the Spanish club's sporting director Andrea Berta — who snubbed the proposal.

Spanish radio station Cadena COPE claimed Bale would like to remain in the Spanish capital as his family are settled.
