The situation 

Bale has decided that his stopover in Qatar… will be in Los Angeles. After signing for Los Angeles FC , the second team in the city after the emblematic Los Angeles Galaxy, many eyes are on how he will deal with this short contract of just six months (MLS ends at the beginning of October, although the playoffs and the Cup could extend the competition for a month; that would make it fit perfectly with the World Cup, which kicks off on November 21). On this matter and much more , John Thorrington, co-president of the club and general director , has decided to speak, confessing to trusting the Welshman’s involvement, that his decision is not for money and that he will want to stay, even after the World. “I would love to be able to tell details, but I can’t because of politics; Now, I will say that both we and Bale hope that this union will last in the long term. It was never just six months for the World Cup , in negotiations we always talk about a longer term. It was made clear to Gareth and his representative. Get distracted by the World Cup? Bale’s priority will be in LAFC , we are absolutely sure of that, but we are also not naive with the fact that he, like other players, has a World Cup in mind ”, he pointed out.

It’s not about money

Bale has been the club’s second big signing in this market, after also signing Chiellini. Thorrington points out that the players are choosing his project for things other than money: “ If Bale based his decision on money, he wouldn’t be in MLS . This league is really exciting globally and he saw an opportunity to make a difference. How we approached the negotiations was incredible; We proposed an open, transparent conversation, so they quickly saw that it was the right combination.” Finally, he spoke about the minutes that the Cardiff Express will play , questioning whether he will force -especially- the closer November gets closer. “Bale will play as much as he can, but it is something we will manage sensibly. As I said, we are not naive: he has a World Cup on the horizon and we want to help him manage his preparation so that he is at his best with us and, also, with his country. We are aware that it is a historic event for Wales (it will be the second World Cup in their entire history; they only played it in 1958, when they fell in the quarterfinals against Brazil, which would end up being champions)”.
