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.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
