"He is staying at Real Madrid this season," sources close to Gareth Bale have told Diario AS recently, implying that the Welshman has ruled out a potential move to Major League Soccer this summer or loans to other clubs for the 2021/22 campaign.

The 32-year-old is out of contract in 2022 and would like to continue his career in the United States but only after his deal at Madrid expires.

Bale spent the previous campaign on loan at Tottenham and was expected to leave the Whites this summer.

Carlo Ancelotti's appointment at the helm of Madrid, however, has changed the scenery completely for Gareth.

The winger has never been favoured by Zinedine Zidane but with the Italian in charge, Bale sees a 'clearer path ahead', as per the source.
