D.C. United have "exchanged proposals" with star winger Gareth Bale, the Washington Post reported Thursday.
The MLS club initially spoke with the 32-year-old Welsh captain's representatives months ago "but it didn't go anywhere," the newspaper's soccer writer posted on Twitter.
In a reply to his own tweet, the writer characterized a scenario that would bring Bale to the nation's capital as "very far-fetched."
Certainly seems very far-fetched but maybe some hope for DCU, given talks have resumed after long pause. Team has been seeking a third DP to join Flores and Fountas. We’ll see.— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) April 21, 2022
Bale is expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the current season on a free transfer.
He scored 11 Premier League goals in 20 appearances while on loan with Tottenham Hotspur during the 2020-21 season but has only featured in four LaLiga matches with Real Madrid in 2021-22.
