Gareth Bale admits he has keenly watched the development of the MLS and a move to the USA may interest him.

Gareth Bales’s future at Real Madrid is never far away from the spotlight of football transfers.

Bale’s relationship with both the club hierarchy and its manager Zinedine Zidane has been under scrutiny since his failed move last summer to China.

Real Madrid for the first time made it clear that the Welshman and at one time the most expensive player in the world can leave if the price is right.

The Welsh winger has been linked with moves to Manchester United, back to old club Tottenham, and most recently Newcastle United.

Bale and his agent though have always insisted that he is happy to stay with Los Blancos and see out his extremely lucrative contract.

But the former Tottenham forward has now admitted he has been keeping a keen eye on the MLS.

Speaking to Hat-Trick podcast, he discusses the possibility of him having a future somewhere other than at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He said:

“I really like the MLS, it’s grown so much over the years.”

“The standard’s getting a lot better, clubs are improving, facilities and stadiums are improving.”

“When we come over and play in pre-season the games are difficult…it’s a league that’s on the up and still rising.”

“A lot more players want to come to America now. I would definitely be interested in it.”

Bale’s future at Real Madrid is still very much undecided. But there is no doubt on his day he is a huge asset to the Spanish giants. Most teams would be glad to add him to their line up.
