Real Madrid's Bale to make decision on long-term future

Gareth Bale is attracting “a lot of interest”, according to his agent, but the Real Madrid forward won’t make a decision on his future until Wales’ World Cup fate is decided.  

The 32-year-old put in an outstanding individual performance to fire his country into the play-off final for Qatar 2022 on Thursday, scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Austria.

Bale is out of contract in Madrid  at the end of the season and is already free to agree a pre-contract with a new club. 

However, agent Jonathan Barnett said that he won’t commit to a new club until after Wales’ play-off final, which will take place in June against Scotland or Ukraine.

“We have had a lot of interest in him, but we haven’t done anything. After June we will discuss what we want to do,” Barnett told the Daily Mail.
