Real Madrid have called off Gareth Bale’s proposed move to China, the UK Telegraph reports.
The Welsh winger was set to leave Spain for Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning in a £1m-a-week deal.
But the deal is now off and Bale is set to stay with the LaLiga giants, who pulled the plug on the switch.
Real president, Florentino Perez, is believed to be blocking the move, because he feels Bale is too valuable to be let go on the cheap.
Manager Zinedine Zidane had urged Bale to look for a new club this summer, after the pair had a bust-up during the Frenchman’s first spell in charge.
