GARETH BALE has ruled out a move to China as he will only leave Real Madrid for a top European club, according to reports.
The Welshman, 29, has allegedly been offered a ludicrous £1.2million-a-week deal to play in the Chinese Super League.
Bale pockets around £600,000-a-week at the Bernabeu and a move to the Far East would see his wages double.
But according to Marca, he will not leave Real Madrid unless one of Europe’s biggest clubs make a move for him.
The Spanish giants are desperate to offload the ex-Tottenham star this summer as he has fallen out of favour under Zinedine Zidane.
He scored just 14 goals for the La Liga side and was dropped for the final three games of the season despite being fit.
Bale has struggled to live up to expectations in Spain since he joined the club from Spurs in a world £85m deal.
The 29-year-old has become an outcast at the Bernabeu and appeared to be cut off from the rest of squad when they flew to Canada on Tuesday.
And he was abused by his club’s own fans when he returned for pre-season training earlier this week.

Madrid will listen to offers for Bale, but it was reported earlier this month that they have received no interest for him.
Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has claimed that his player would suit a return to the Premier League with Manchester United.
But even Wayne Rooney has warned his former club against bringing Bale to Old Trafford next season.
