"I'll be very interested. Sure.

I love traveling to Los Angeles

and

I've played golf when I've been able to go

.

MLS

is a league that has grown a lot in recent years."

They are words from 2020, but they serve to understand the decision that

Gareth Bale

has made .

After completing his contract with

Real Madrid

, the British footballer will sign with

Los Angeles FC

, an MLS team, and will prepare in

Hollywood

for the

World Cup in Qatar ,

Wales

' second presence

in a

World Cup

after the one in

1958

.

At

32 years old

and after winning

5 Champions League

, will be the icing on the lefty's career.

According to Tom

Bogert

, an American journalist expert in MLS, Bale has reached an agreement with Los Angeles FC for the

next twelve months

, once again leaving the door open for a withdrawal in the

summer of 2023

.

Pending the official announcement by the MLS franchise, the Welsh striker could make his debut on July 8 against the

Galaxy

in the city derby, just one day after the tournament's transfer window opens.

In the Los Angeles team he will meet the Italian defender

Giorgio Chiellini

, who has just signed from

Juventus

, and the Mexican

Carlos Vela

, star of the team and the competition since he left

Real Sociedad

and crossed the pond to play in the

United States

.

Bale arrives at a young club with just four years of life, which debuted in the North American league in 2018 and whose best result was the

semifinals of 2019

.

After two disappointing years, this season the California team has started well and

leads the Western Conference

after 15 games thanks, in large part, to the six goals that Vela has scored.

With him, Bale will share a forward, who lands in a championship that little by little tries to remove the stigma of '

cemetery of stars

', even if it costs.

Veteran forwards like

Gonzalo Higuaín

(Inter Miami) and

Chicharito Hernández (Los Angeles Galaxy) continue to score goals in MLS, and

Lorenzo Insigne

, formerly of Napoli, who has signed for Toronto,

also arrives alongside Bale .

Movements that give shine to the competition but that maintain that path of signing good players who are already in the last moments of their career.

As a curiosity, the ownership of Los Angeles FC belongs to a group of investors, including actors such as

Will Ferrell

, sports legends such as

Magic Johnson

, who also owns part of the Los Angeles Dodgers of the baseball league, or businessmen. of American sports as

Joe Tsai

, founder of the Alibaba group and member of the ownership group of the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA.

Los Angeles, Bale's final choice, has ended up winning the game against

Cardiff City,

a Welsh team that participates in the

Championship

, the second division of British football, and which also sounded like the destination of the former Real Madrid.

The North American league calendar fits perfectly with Bale's preparation for the World Cup.

The

MLS Playoffs

will start in October and the grand final will be on

November 5

, 16 days before the first match of the World Cup.
