Then Bale cast further doubt over his playing future earlier this week when he refused to rule out retiring after the Euros following reports in Spain.

Bale still has 12 months remaining on his eye-watering £650,000-a-week Real contract.

And when asked if Ancelotti’s second stint at the Bernabeu will affect his future plans, Bale said: “No, I am not thinking about anything until after the Euros.

“I know Carlo Ancelotti, he’s a great manager and I get on with him really well.

“We had some great times in the past.

“But I haven’t spoken to anyone.

“As soon as the Euros finishes I’m sure I will have a conversation and then I will go from there. 

“I am not thinking about anything until after the Euros.”
