Earlier this week, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett is quoted as telling ESPN FC: “Gareth will speak to the (Real Madrid) Coach (Julen Lopetegui) and we will go from there.”

Bale’s current deal runs to 2022 but he faces a stiff competition for a starting line up from Isco and Marco Asensio.

Cristiano Ronaldo has already left Madrid this summer for Juventus, as had Coach Zinedine Zidane, as Los Blancos undergo widespread changes.
