According to Sky Sports, Gareth Bale is set to hold talks with Julen Lopetegui about his future at Real Madrid.
Since he moved to Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham Hotspur for a world-record transfer fee in 2013, Bale has struggled with injuries, and even though he had scored several absolutely vital goals for the club, he had lost his place in the starting XI under Zinedine Zidane.
However, he made a huge impact coming on from the bench in the Champions League final against Liverpool by scoring two spectacular goals to secure the 13th European crown for Real, and after the final whistle he cast a doubt over his days in the white shirt continuing further.
Meanwhile, Zidane left his post and Lopetegui is now taking over, and with the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus now completed, the newly appointed manager just might be reluctant to part ways with Bale too and ready to offer him a role more befitting of his quality.
