Gareth Bale will address his Real Madrid future in the coming days with his agent after being named as a substitute in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
Injuries have halted Bale’s consistent starts at Madrid in the last two seasons, losing his place to the likes of Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.
The Welsh winger has been in form when given the chance by boss Zinedine Zidane however, but he was named on the bench for Saturday’s match in Kiev against Liverpool.
Coming off the bench for Spanish midfielder Isco in the second half, Bale took matters into his own hands, netting a superb overhead kick just moments after coming on, and scoring a 25-yard effort which was fumbled by Reds keeper Loris Karius.
Whilst Bale’s heroic performance has many Madrid fans wetting their lips and celebrating, the former Tottenham Hotspur winger instantly told reporters that he would be speaking to his agent about his future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I need to be playing week in, week out, and that’s not happened this season,” Bale told BT Sport.
“I had an injury five, six weeks into the season but I’ve been fit ever since.
“I have to sit down with my agent in the summer and discuss it.
“Obviously I was very disappointed not to start the game, I have deserved it but the manager makes the decisions.”
His future talk is also accompanied by Cristiano Ronaldo’s, who told press that he would inform Madrid of his future next week when he joins up with the Portuguese national side ahead of the World Cup this summer.
