GARETH BALE will wait to see who is named the new Real Madrid boss before deciding his future, according to reports.
The Champions League hero appeared to endure a strained relationship with Zinedine Zidane, who left him out of the starting line-up in Kiev.
Following his two-goal heroics against Liverpool, he appeared to issue a come-get-me plea, and Manchester United immediately appeared as the frontrunners.
The Frenchman stunned the footballing world when he called a press conference to announce his resignation from the Bernabeu.
And, as yet, there is no clear over who will replace him in the Real Madrid hotseat.
Bale found himself marginalised under Zidane and has now started the past two Champions League finals on the bench.
United have been long-term admirers of the Welsh winger and even tried to sign him from Tottenham the same summer he moved to the Bernabeu in a then world-record £86million move.
And, with his future in the balance, they are hoping to finally get their man in this transfer window — but could face competition from Bayern Munich.
Bale joined Real Madrid in 2013 and has won a staggering 11 trophies, including a joint-British record of four Champions League medals.
