English Championship side Cardiff City is currently stepping up their efforts to sign former Tottenham and Real Madrid star player Gareth Bale. The Bluebirds chairman Mehmet Dalman has flown into the United Kingdom to lead the negotiations to land the player. 32-year-old Gareth Bale is available on a free transfer having left Real Madrid after nine years in Spain, during which he won five Champions League titles.
Cardiff City Wants to Sign Gareth Bale
On Sunday, his deflected free-kick secured Wales’ 1-0 win over Ukraine and a place at the World Cup in Qatar. A return to Tottenham or a move to a Major League Soccer club in the United States has also been mooted as possible options as Bale looks to round off his stellar career.
But Championship club Cardiff is also in the picture. Gareth Bale was born in Cardiff but, having had spells at Southampton, Tottenham and Real Madrid, he has never played club football in Wales. Cardiff is seen as an option because his primary consideration is to lead his country to its first-ever World Cup in 64 years.
But Cardiff is looking beyond Qatar in November and December. They hope that offering him the chance to lead them back into the Premier League will be a driving factor behind him signing a contract even beyond the 2022-23 season.
