Golf-mad Gareth Bale has seemingly fallen out of love with Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and looks set to sign a reported new £1 million-a-week contract with Chinese football club Beijing Guoan. 


 

The Welsh wizard may have scored in Real's friendly against Arsenal yesterday, but it would appear more than likely he will be boarding a flight from Spain to China before the start of the new football season.

Bale might be one of the world's greatest footballers, but he is also golf mad - just as Mark Crossfield found out last year...

Two months ago, Bale suggested he would be happy to simply stay in Madrid, count his money and play golf all day if Zidane didn't want to use him in the first team - CLICK HERE TO READ.

But it looks as though the Welshman will in fact leave in search of a new club this summer, with Zidane confirming his imminent exit on Sunday.

With a plethora of clubs wanting the signature of Bale this summer, it appears most likely that the Welsh winger is heading for a whopping new deal at Chinese club Beijing Guoan.

While Bale has been spoilt for golf courses during his time in Spain, he will still get to play some fantastic courses should he eventually end up in China...

Taking a closer look at golf clubs in the area, there would appear 18 within reasonable driving distance from Beijing for Bale to tee it up on.

Two private member resort clubs that will likely appeal to Bale are situated in the heart of the city, Beijing Willow and Beijing CBD International.

Another one lies in Pine Valley, approximately one hour north of Beijing, and it should offer plenty of appeal given it's designed by 18-time record holder Jack Nicklaus

The other 15 golf clubs are all stay-and-play resorts, which will unlikely appeal to the former Spurs and Southampton winger. 

If all else fails, we're fairly certain he'll build another golf course in his backyard.
