Gareth Bale's future at Real Madrid is an unknown quantity. His contract expires in June 2022 and it has been years since he has not been at his best, the one that characterised him as a key player for the 'bbc' and which has now given way to a winding road of doubts and injuries. His agent, Jonathan Barnett, spoke to 'Deportes Cuatro' about what the next season could hold for them.
"He loves living here with his family, he loves Madrid. We're going to wait and see what happens," he said. In principle, the board are not keen on trying to renew him. It has already been leaked that he is on the list of possible sales in the winter transfer window. The aim would be to recoup some of the investment made to sign him from Tottenham Hotspur.
Barnett also addressed the striker's recent fitness problems, who was once again sidelined with a calf strain that struck him while on international duty with Wales. "It was very unfortunate," lamented his agent, who believes the ailment is partly down to bad luck.
"We had to play Wales, it was very important for the World Cup. It's something that can happen to anyone, but unfortunately it happened to him," he added. The situation has prompted Real Madrid to consider appealing to the FIFA fund, which is activated when a club loses a professional player for too long because he is with his national team.
