Gareth Bale says he will have talks with his agent this summer about his Real Madrid future after being named as a substitute in the Champions League final win over Liverpool.
Bale, 28, scored a stunning overhead kick to help lead Zinedine Zidane’s side to a third consecutive major European title
Speaking to BT Sport after the match he said he thought he should have started the game:
“Obviously I was very disappointed not to start the game, I felt I deserved it but the manager makes the decisions. The best I have been doing is to come on and make an impact, I certainly did.
“It has to be the best goal in a Champions League final, there is no bigger stage. I am just happy to get the win.
“It is a team game but when you are a substitute, it is a game of more than 11 players. I made an impact.
“We know what we have achieved and how good we have been. The league was disappointing but we won the Champions League. It turns out to be a great season.
“We let everyone else speak. We know how hungry we are in the changing room, how prepared and motivated we are.”
When asked if he would be playing in the Premier League next season, Bale said:
“I need to be playing week in week out, that has not happened this season. I have to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent.”
Bale, who recently been linked with a move to German champions Bayern Munich and there have also been reports of a return to England with Manchester United, has a contract with Real Madrid until 2022.
