Others believe that Gareth Bale could be on the verge of retiring. Some feel that his future in soccer could hinge on whether he can lead Wales to the World Cup this year:
Would not be surprised if Bale retires especially if Wales don’t make the World Cup.

Between 2014 and 2018, Real Madrid won the Champions League four times – including a first-ever three-peat between 2016 and 2018. He also won two La Liga, one Copa Del Rey, three UEFA Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cup titles.
