Welsh striker Gareth Bale announced Saturday that he is joining Major League Soccer's Los Angeles FC, confirming a story published hours earlier by reporter Tom Bogert on the MLS website.

"See you soon, Los Angeles," the 32-year-old Wales captain said in a tweet accompanying a video of himself sporting LAFC gear.

Bogert reported that Bale will come to the current MLS leaders on a free transfer once the forward's contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of this month.
