“He leaves Real Madrid, but we have to wait for what Wales will be able to do,” Barnett said to Portuguese outlet Record.
“It all depends on whether Wales qualify for the World Cup, then we will make a decision, which may vary whether or not Wales go to the World Cup.
“I think [Bale is likely to return to England], but we’ll have to wait and see if Wales qualifies for the World Cup.”
Wales will play their crucial World Cup qualifier vs Scotland on June 5th. Undoubtedly, Bale will be prioritizing reaching that game in his best physical condition.
Barnett didn’t outright say it, but that Bale’s future is dependant on Wales qualifying for the World Cup could mean Bale would retire if his country fails to qualify. Should Wales get through to Qatar, Bale will want to move to a team in the UK in order to ensure he has match fitness for the tournament.
A couple hours removed from Real Madrid’s draw in Cadiz, all the noise was about Kylian Mbappe’s quotes at the French players’ union ceremony. The Frenchman, who took home yet another Ligue 1 player of the year award, spoke about this future in a way that, even though using vague language, made it seem clear he would depart from Paris officially by the end of the month.
Mbappe said he would announce his decision “well before” joining the French National Team for international duty at the end of the month and also went on to say: “I will give my decision very quickly; it’s almost over.. My choice is almost made.”
“We have to respect all the parties involved,” Mbappe explained. “I’m in a hurry too, but it’s not just about me. It’s over, there are only a few details left, but it’s over.”
