Los Angeles FC officially confirmed this Monday the signing of the Welshman Gareth Baleformer Real Madrid player, with a twelve-month contract with the option to extend it until 2024after paying $75,000 dollars to Inter Miami, also interested in the soccer player, to get a priority right.
MLS provides that, in the event that two teams are interested in signing the same player at the same time, the team with the worst points record in the regular season is entitled to priority.
Inter-Miami had priority in the signing of Bale by having fewer points than LAFC, but the Los Angeles club exercised its right to offer money to the contending team to acquire the services of the Welsh player, five-time European champion with Real Madrid.

This is not the only recent move by LAFC, as the team coached by Steve Cherundolo announced this month the addition of Giorgio Chiellini, Juventus captain and European champion with the Italian national team.

“If it is in my hand, of course I will continue in the LAFC. I will help the team win a trophy,” the Mexican said in mid-May.
