Real Madrid will delay making a decision about Gareth Bale’s future at the club until after they have appointed a new manager, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Spanish giants are in no rush to resolve the Wales international’s situation despite the uncertainty about his future this summer.

According to the same story, Zinedine Zidane’s decision to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season has heightened Bale’s chances of staying at the club.

Bale has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks after he admitted that he would be considering his future after the Champions League final.

However, those comments came before Zidane’s decision to leave Real Madrid at the end of last season, leaving the Spanish side now on the lookout for a new manager.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move to bring the 28-year-old back to the Premier League in the past but it remains to be seen whether there is any truth to the reports or not.

The Red Devils have already moved quickly to sign both Fred and Diogo Dalot this summer as they look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.
