Gareth Bale is actually going back to his club Real Madrid after his Spurs loan. But according to one report, he is thinking of quitting.
Gareth Bale reportedly plans to end his career after serving for Wales at the European Championship. This is reported by the Spanish sports newspaper Brand. The 31-year-old was loaned to Tottenham by Real Madrid last season, and he still has a contract in the Spanish capital until 2022.
According to the newspaper, Bale will announce his decision after the EM if he does not change his mind again. One reason for a change of heart could be the hiring of Carlo Ancelotti as the new Real coach. Under the Italian, Bale had his best period with Los Blancos.
Real could save Bale’s mega salary
The Madrilenians are open to the end of Bale’s career despite the contract that is still in force, because they would save the Welsh’s exorbitant salary of 22 million euros.
Bale joined Real in 2013 for a three-digit million sum. At the beginning of his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, he formed the dreaded ‘BBC’ trio with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, before it became increasingly difficult for him to get on duty under coach Zinedine Zidane.
