GARETH BALE has been offered a ludicrous £1.2million A WEEK by an unnamed Chinese club, according to reports.
Wales superstar Bale, 29, pockets around £600,000 a week at Real Madrid but this outrageous bid from the Far East would double his already gargantuan wages.
Bale, who was abused by Real fans shouting “desagradecido” which is Spanish for ungrateful when arriving for training, would normally command a massive transfer fee.
But the unknown Chinese Super League side are, according to El Chiringuito, unwilling to pay anything towards Bale joining.
That has led to Real, who have already splashed £300m this summer on the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic and remain in the market for Paul Pogba, rejecting the approach.
Bale – who was recently seen enjoying a holiday in Mexico – has been out of favour at the club for some time and his rift with boss Zinedine Zidane shows no sign of passing.
Real are desperate to offload the winger, who scored just 14 goals last season and did not feature in any of Real’s last three league matches despite being fit.
The Bernabeu side are looking to bring in French World Cup winner Pogba – who has had a pre-season bust-up with Jesse Lingard and did not appear to make up with him during training.
And they were reportedly willing to offer Bale or Spanish star Isco to seal the deal.
Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has said that he believes his player would suit Manchester United – but that a move there is unlikely to happen.
Even Wayne Rooney urged his old side not go in for his former fellow Prem star.
Barnett said: “He could fit in there but it’s very unlikely.”

Bayern Munich were also interested, but only on a loan, and Barnett insists that has no chance of happening.
He said: “Obviously, Gareth’s situation hasn’t improved. But a loan move is not going to happen.
“I don’t think he wants to go out on loan. He’s got a lovely life in Spain. It would take something exceptional for him to leave and loans are not on the menu.”
