Wales head coach Rob Page is convinced that Gareth Bale will not hang his boots after this season. The Real Madrid attacker intends to leave the Spanish capital and can count on the interests of Giovanni van Bronckhorst Rangers FC, among others.
Bale has been sidelined by Real and announced at the end of last year that he only wants to play matches with the national team. Therefore, the 32-year-old attacker was associated with early retirement, but Page said it was not yet. “When Wales goes to the World Cup in November, he will definitely be active. The World Cup is his dream, it is the only thing missing from his CV,” the Welshman told The Athleticule.
Wales have a World Cup ticket after the play-off final. “The question is where he plays. Whether he comes home, stays in Spain or chooses another challenge, I really don’t know what he’s doing,” Page said.
In the British and Welsh media, Bale is associated with his more expensive Cardiff City in his childhood, playing in the championships at Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Rangers FC. Van Bronckhorst is said to be interested in the attacker.
