THE HAGUE, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Manchester United have signed midfielder Donny van der Beek from Ajax, both clubs announced on Wednesday.
LAUSANNE, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Armand Duplantis from Sweden set a season's best 6.07 meters in the pole vault at the Wanda Diamond League meeting here on Wednesday, securing the highest outdoor pole vault jump for 26 years.
Asked whether he would be willing to return to England in the future, Bale replied, "If those options arise, it is something I'd look at for sure."
Luneng, who lost to Dalian Pro 1-0 in the last round, hit the woodwork twice during the game against Suning.
Photos of Bale in the stands in those games showed the forward looking bored and willing to show that boredom by appearing to be half asleep at times, knowing he would not play.
With Ajax, Van de Beek won the Eredivisie and the KNVB Cup in 2019 and made it to the semifinals of that year's UEFA Champions League. The midfielder has also been capped 10 times for the Dutch national team. Enditem
Members of the US women's team filed a lawsuit against their federation in March because of alleged discrimination over wages. A federal judge ruled against the players, who have since lodged an appeal.
"We'll see what happens; we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well. Time will tell," commented the forward, who added "the decision is in Real Madrid's hands."
Bale added that despite apparently not being in Zidane's plans, Madrid had stopped him moving last season.
"I was looking to take the jersey on stage six anyway so I'll go in with the same tactic - try to win the stage and see what happens."
With the win, Suning leapfrogged Luneng into second place on the table with 17 points from nine games, two points adrift of Fabio Cannavaro's Guangzhou Evergrande who have played one match less.
