Bale, 32, is a free agent after failing to extend his contract with Los Blancos and although there were earlier suggestions he may end up joining Cardiff City (Wales Online), it appears that America’s top flight is going to be the former Spurs winger’s next destination.

Although Real Madrid opted against extending Bale’s stay in the Spanish capital, the 32-year-old’s nine years with the club will be remembered as a massive success.

Not only did the Wales international score 106 goals in 258 appearances, in all competitions, for Los Blancos, but his contributions since joining from Spurs in 2013, also helped fire the club to 18 major trophies, including five Champions Leagues.
