Bale is rumored to be one of the main Mourinho's targets for the second summer in a row.
Earlier this week, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett reportedly told ESPN FC: "Gareth will speak to the (Real Madrid) coach (Julen Lopetegui) and we will go from there."
After Cristiano Ronaldo's departure and Karim Benzema rumored to have been linked with Napoli, it seems that the lucky BBC trio might completely fall apart this summer.

It's supposed that, if Bale stays at the club, he'll still lose his spot to Isco and Marco Asensio even more often with Lopetegui because of the former Spain coach understanding of how this duo could be involved in Madrid's tactical scheme.
