Gareth Bale Next Club Odds: Welshman Heading To MLS?
Gareth Bale has wanted out of Real Madrid for some time and relations between him and the club have become strained. With reports of a high salary and Madrid having wanted a fee it's been hard for him to find a new club but odds suggest that we may see the four-time Champions League winner in the MLS soon.
British bookmakers have former club Tottenham as his most likely desination, with some books as short as +110 and as long as +300 that he returns to North London. Former suitors Manchester United are also in the running at a best price of +1000 and a short price of +700.
One thing that will excite MLS fans is that Bale to move to any MLS club is as short as +550 with one bookie, implying a 15.4% chance that we'll see the 31-year move to the US before the end of this window.
Seeing a superstar, and one arguably still in his prime, would be a huge boost to the status of the league and Inter Miami are amongst the possible destinations for the left-footed superstar.
Tottenham is also the most popular destination according to bettors with over 56% backing a return to Spurs. Over the past 7 days just 2.42% believed Bale was joining an MLS team, although that's risen to 15% over the past 24 hours, showing that their is rising belief that we could be about to see a marquee signing in MLS history.
