Gareth Bale's choice: retain his Real Madrid salary, or get to play soccer

The Welshman will be paid a basic salary of £1.1million a week, nearly doubling the £600,000 a week that he now earns at Real Madrid.

Real were 5-0 down at half-time to their local rivals at the MetLife Stadium as Costa and new Atlético signing João Félix ran riot.

Costa added his fourth goal six minutes after the restart, before both he and Real's Dani Carvajal were red carded for fighting in the 61st minute.

Atletico newcomer Joao Felix added a goal in the 8th minute, while Angel Correa (19') and Vitolo (70') added to the romp.

Zinedine Zidane has made it clear to the Dominican Republic striker that his future lies away from the club, despite his dream of triumphing as a Real Madrid player.

Real Madrid's fallen Galactico Gareth Bale is close to becoming the latest big-money import into the Chinese Super League after reports suggested that the Welsh football ace is on the verge of a megabucks move to Jiangsu Suning. The good news for Real Madrid is that they still have three or maybe four preseason matches to keep practicing.

"After eight minutes we were 2-0 down and there was no response from us to try and change something".

"I want to score as many goals as possible so that we can reach our objectives".

- However, Sky also say Dybala could be offered to Manchester United as part of a Juventus bid to sign Romelu Lukaku, who is also wanted by Inter.

"I do not rush to anything", Simeone told reporters after the match. They aren't failing me. But with everything else, I'm convinced that I have a team that will compete very well. In the last two matches alone, Real has lost Marco Asensio, Ferland Mendy, and now Luka Jovic to what looks like serious injuries. "I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club".
