Cardiff is in talks to sign Gareth Bale: Following the departure of the Wales captain from Real Madrid, Gareth Bale’s agents said on Wednesday that they had spoken with Cardiff about a prospective transfer.
Following the conclusion of his tumultuous nine-year stint in Madrid, Bale has been heavily linked with a free move to his hometown side.
Before representing Wales at the World Cup in Qatar in November, the 32-year-old attacker, who was once the most expensive player in the world, is said to be weighing the benefits and drawbacks of joining the Bluebirds.
According to his agents, he is in talks with Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman, who spoke to BBC Sport Wales.

Five-time Champions League champion Bale has several choices, including clubs in the MLS, Newcastle, and Tottenham, among others.
However, he fueled rumours that he would pick Cardiff by asserting that his level of performance before the World Cup would not be a deciding factor.
I don’t know whether the level makes that big of a difference, Bale stated last week while on international duty with Wales. Anything related to football is football.
“Hopefully, we’ll figure it out over the summer. I need time to consider the greatest decision for myself, my family, and my kids. I have choices.
Bale, who has relatives in Cardiff, earned over £600,000 ($736,000) a week at Real and would need to accept a substantial pay reduction to join Steve Morison’s team.
But in a recent interview, his agent Jonathan Barnett said that “what Gareth does next is not about money.”
Some supporters claimed that Bale was set to finalize his transfer to the Bluebirds when they saw him on Wednesday at Cardiff’s training facility.
However, Cardiff utilizes the same facilities like the medical staff of the Football Association of Wales, and it is believed that Bale was there to do physiotherapy.
