Gareth Bale hints that he WON'T be retiring this summer after recently confirming the end of his nine year stay at Spanish giants Real Madrid... as the Welshman claims it's 'very unlikely' that he will not join a new club

  • The 32-year-old has won a host of major honours since joining Real back in 2013

Gareth Bale has hinted that will not be retiring despite his exit from Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer. 

The Welshman won a host of major trophies after leaving Tottenham to complete a then-world-record £86million move to Madrid in 2013, including five Champions Leagues and three Spanish titles.

He scored three goals in Champions League finals for the club, helping them reach 'La Decima' (the 10th) against Atletico Madrid in 2014 before decisively scoring twice against Liverpool four years later.

The 32-year-old will now depart after a nine-year stay at Bernabeu when his contract expires, with speculation mounting over what is next for the forward.

It has been rumoured that he could even retire rather than join a new club this summer.

Bale, however, has denied that talk when he was asked about the prospect of not joining another club. To which, he responded: 'I think that's very unlikely.'

Bale enjoyed a breathtaking start to his time in Madrid, scoring 88 goals in his first 189 appearances while sweeping up four Champions Leagues, La Liga and the Copa del Rey. 

However, the final four years of his Bernabeu career did not prove as successful. A series of injury problems and a subsequent dip in form restricted him to merely another 69 appearances, with Los Blancos even deciding to send him back to Spurs on loan in the 2020/21 campaign.

Despite his decline and lack of fitness Bale refused to throw in the towel on his Madrid career, seeing out the final year of his contract while featuring just five times in La Liga.

Bale ended up winning nine major trophies in his time at the club, including five Champions League titles.

Despite his fractured relationship with supporters of late, Bale has thanked the Los Blancos and insisted it was an 'honour' to play for the club in a heartfelt farewell message. 

'I write this message to say thank you to all my team mates, past and present, my managers, the backroom staff and to the fans that supported me,' he said on Twitter.

'I arrived here nine years ago as a young man who wanted to realise my dream of playing for Real Madrid. 

'To wear the pristine white kit, to wear the crest on my chest, to play at the Santiago Bernabeu, to win titles and to be part of what it's so famous for, to win the Champions League.

'I can now look back, reflect and say with honesty that this dream became a reality and much, much more.

'To be a part of this club's history and to achieve what we achieved while I was a Real Madrid player, has been an incredible experience and one I will never forget.

'I also want to thank President Florentino Perez, Jose Angel Sanchez, and the board for giving me the opportunity to play for this club. Together we were able to create some moments that will live forever in the history of this club and football.

'It has been an honour. Thank you! HALA MADRID!'
