Gareth Bale will undoubtedly go down in Real Madrid history as a player who came up clutch under the highest of pressures. One cannot deny that the Welshman was a vital pillar in the triple Champions League-winning side.

However, the end of Bale’s stay in Madrid is turning out to be uglier than initially imagined. The player has been out of the team dynamics for a long time now, but his recent world-class displays have ignited sparks in Spanish media once again.

According to reports from Fichajes, Bale has already decided on his next destination once his contract at the Bernabeu ends. The player wishes to sign a short term contract with Cardiff City as the next step in his career.

Several clubs from the Premier League and Serie A have made proposals to sign the Welsh international. With his contract set to run out in June, the prospect of his arrival on a free transfer is indeed tempting.

Yet, Bale wishes to return to his native country Wales, and Cardiff provides exactly that opportunity. Moreover, the reduced pressure at the club would help him recover his best form.

Bale has made four La Liga appearances this season with a cumulative of 268 minutes. He has scored one goal in the said duration. His last appearance came in the team’s 1-0 defeat to PSG at the Parc de Princes.

Last week, the Real Madrid forward made the headlines for producing a stunning performance in the colours of his national team. He scored both the goals on the night including a stunning free-kick which slotted right into the top right corner.

Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
