Gareth Bale is reportedly keen to stay at Real Madrid beyond this season, despite question marks hanging over his future at the Bernabeu.
The Welshman has struggled to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo and there are suggestions he could return to the Premier League this summer, with Madrid keen to refresh their squad following a disappointing campaign.

Bale’s current contract runs until the summer of 2022 and he has reportedly told his entourage that he does not want to leave the Bernabeu during the next transfer window.
It’s also claimed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who has stood by him in the face of criticism, could play a pivotal role in deciding his future.
The Welshman has picked up 14 trophies in Spain and proved the matchwinner in last season’s Champions League final against Liverpool.
But his performances have been criticised by supporters in Spain, while his reported reluctance to speak Spanish has fuelled suggestions he is unsettled at the club.
Bale revealed he would consider his future last summer and the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager has only intensified the uncertainty surrounding his long-term prospects in Madrid.
