What the papers say Hopes of a return to the Premier League for Gareth Bale appear to be fading amid reports Manchester United and Tottenham have both closed the door on a big-money move for the Wales international. The Daily Mail reports that a combination of his age and injury problems has put both clubs off signing a player who earns £600,000-a-week before tax. The Telegraph claims the 29-year-old could instead be heading to China, reporting that Beijing Guoan are interested in making Bale the highest-paid player in Chinese football history. The Independent, meanwhile, suggests Paris St Germain could be preparing a swap deal for Bale that would send Neymar to the Bernabeu.
