Gareth Bale has rejected Arsenal’s audacious offer, according to reports in Spain.
According to Don Balon via the Express, Arsenal had identified Bale as the man to replace Alexis Sanchez who is stalling on signing a contract extension but the Welsh forward has turned down the chance of moving to the Emirates.
Spanish press claims Bale’s future at Madrid is in doubt and he has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent months even though he revealed a fortnight ago that he isn’t looking to leave the Champions League winner just yet.
Arsenal are one of the clubs being linked with the former Tottenham winger but Don Balon claims he rejected the chance of joining the Gunners because we won’t be participating in the Champions League next year.
Whether Arsenal actually approached Bale about a potential move hasn’t been authenticated just yet but we are made to believe that there is no chance he’ll be plying his trade at the Emirates anytime soon.
Again his history with Tottenham would make it difficult for him to choose Arsenal, considering both clubs are local rivals.
A player like Bale will be the perfect signing to replace Sanchez but personally, I don’t think he’ll be leaving Madrid this summer, not even to another club participating in the Champions League.
