Esp: Gareth Bale is one loss from retirement

Unavailable for several months, Gareth Bale (32) is experiencing a new complicated season at Real Madrid. It could be his last exercise as the Welsh winger is reportedly considering hanging up his boots if his selection does not make it through the 2022 World Cup play-offs in March.

To find the trace of a match between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid, we have to go back to August 28, the date of the match won against Betis Sevilla (0-1) in La Liga. Since then, the former Tottenham player has spent his time in the infirmary, on the substitutes’ bench or in isolation because of contamination with Covid-19. In summary, with his three small games played this season, the Welshman does not exist in the rotations of coach Carlo Ancelotti. And nothing says that the person concerned is really affected by this situation.

Last season for Bale?

Indeed, The Athletic confirms that Gareth Bale is clearly planning to retire at the end of the fiscal year. His main goal is to play in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. But if Wales did not pass the dams next March, the Merengue would not have plans to bounce back after the end of their contract three months later. This is to say the weariness of Gareth Bale who has never really hidden his state of mind. Already last summer, after the scathing defeat against Denmark (4-0) in the round of 16 of the Euro, the English press began to talk about a possible retirement.

A possible termination of his contract at Real Madrid was mentioned, before a denial of the person concerned. To believe that this rumor was not totally crazy. In any case, Gareth Bale does not intend to hang up his crampons this winter. Unfortunately for the White House, which will have to pay him every last penny of his salary, the Welsh rocket will run out of his lease, if only to remain competitive for the first play-off match against Austria on the 24th. March.
