- I’m sure he’s going to be amazing in charge there: Bale on Ancelotti
Wales forward Gareth Bale said he will discuss his future at Real Madrid with newly-appointed manager Carlo Ancelloti after his campaign with the senior national team at the European Championship, starting later this month.
Bale has one year’s contract left at Real Madrid and he is expected to return to the La Liga giants following a season-long spell with Tottenham Hotspur. However, speculation has been rife about his future at Real Madrid.
Ancelotti, who left Everton this week and returned to Madrid for a second spell as coach, was in charge when they signed Bale in 2013 and enjoys a good relationship with the 31-year-old.
“I know Carlo’s returned and I get on with him really well, and I’m not denying that, but I’m just concentrating on now,” Bale told Sky Sports.
“I’m sure I’ll have a conversation with him at some point and I’ll go from there when that happens. As soon as the Euros finishes then I’ll go from there.”
Sure Ancelotti is going to be amazing at Real: Bale
Bale won the first of his four Champions League titles under Italian Ancelotti in 2014 and described the manager as a “great guy.”
“We had a great time together at Real, I’m sure he’s going to be amazing in charge there,” Bale added. “I spoke to him when we played Everton at the start of the season, we hugged and had a little chat which was nice.
“But I’m still in the same boat and haven’t thought about it too much. I’m concentrating on our preparation and what’s going to happen in the Euros. I’ll sort the rest of it after.”
Wales, who take on Albania in a friendly later on Saturday, begin their Euro 2020 campaign against Switzerland on June 12.
