Bale to Cardiff next year, owner suggests

Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has suggested Gareth Bale could join the hometown club next year after revealing how close he was to signing for the Bluebirds before joining Los Angeles FC.

Tan told talkSPORT: “His contract is for 12 months, let’s see what happens. Maybe Gareth by then will probably want to come back and go home and serve his country, serve Cardiff, his hometown.

“He’s never played at Cardiff, he and his family are fans of the club. So hopefully in 12 months he’s still young, he’ll only be 34, some players come back and play until they’re 40 . Old.

“So he has a few more years to play and hopefully he comes to play for Cardiff after that (LAFC contract ends).”
