Gareth Bale has been offered an escape from Real Madrid after reportedly receiving an enormous £1.2m-a-week deal to play in China.

The Welsh superstar would see his £600,000-a-week package doubled if he was to move to the unnamed club in the Far East.

But Real Madrid have rejected the offer because the Chinese club are unwilling to pay a fee beyond covering his wages, according to El Chiringuito.

Real have already splashed over £300m on a summer overhaul and remain in the hunt for Paul Pogba.
