After a turbulent few years with Zidane as Madrid coach, Bale seems more liberated with the presence of Ancelotti. The Welshman is playing a leading role in the team and he owes that in part to the Italian.
In fact, the player himself acknowledged in an interview with the 'BBC' that he feels more comfortable in the team: "This year, there is a better atmosphere for me at Madrid".
And being this happy could lead to him wanting to continue another year in white. The newspaper 'AS' reports that the striker does not rule out renewing his contract with 'Los Blancos' until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The aforementioned source reports that the idea of the player, who finishes his contract next summer, is to stay at the club because his goal is to try to be with his country at the next World Cup.
However, there is a problem. The player is paid 15 million, the same amount as Eden Hazard. For the time being, the Madrid newspaper insists that the Welshman, if he really wants to continue, should reduce his salary considerably due to the crisis caused by the coronavirus.
Although there has been talk of a hypothetical retirement to dedicate himself to golf or a move to the MLS in 2022, Bale's entourage leaves the door open: "In football we have seen everything, we have to wait for the summer".
