Bale sends an S.O.S

first_imgThe MLS seems to be the best solution for Bale, by language, quality of life and possibility of playing golf, his great hobby. In the conversation unveiled now, even one of the participants even shouts: “Miami!”, In clear reference to the franchise that is now owned by Beckham, Inter Miami. Bale was already one step away from going to play in the Chinese Super League, at Jiangsu Suning, because Madrid opened the door for him last summer. Between China and the US, the choice for Bale is clear. The key is that Madrid does not charge a transfer and that they manage to pay their high salary … The sad reality is that last summer only that offer came from China by the player. So Barnett exclaims, “If anyone wants it!” The Hat-trick Potcast presented by the International Champions Cup. The first episode of this podcast of the great summer competition he served Gareth Bale to send an SOS about his situation at Real Madrid. With a contract until 2022 and a salary of 14.5 million euros that he does not want to lower, does not count for Zidane and must search for equipment. Madrid needs to lose weight in the face of the crisis that is coming due to the coronavirus. There are more soccer players like James, Mariano or Odriozola who are in the same situation …The podcast became a kind of promotional video for the Welshman. The question about MLS in which the Welsh player says “I would definitely be interested” has spread to all corners of the world. What has not transpired are the last seconds of the video of the interview that can be seen on YouTube, in which the request for help is already more evident. The interview includes Charlie Stillitano, executive producer of the International Champions Cup, Neil Barnett, a year in charge of Chelsea’s communication, and Ray Hudson, a famous American television commentator (from the Bien Sports channel). But, in addition, and this is what had not transpired, the representative of the player, Jonathan Barnett, was online. The key to the video is from minute 34:20. Charlie Stillitano begins to fire the player, and already in a more relaxed atmosphere, he says: “I hope someday you can come to MLS.” That’s when Jonathan Barnett interrupts: “If anyone loves him, Charlie! Someone has to call him first … “. That causes everyone to laugh. And Stillitano continues: “I think there must be many suitors Jonathan, there must be many suitors …”. And, finally, Bale himself enters the conversation: “(Inaudible) happen … That’s the most important thing.” The player seems to want to say: “See if they can make that happen … that’s the most important thing.” Between the representative and the player, a full SOS.(embed) (/ embed)last_img read more
