Gareth Bale would retire from football if Wales fail to qualify for Qatar 2022

Gareth Bale to consider retiring from soccer if the selection of Welsh does not get the pass to Qatar World Cup 2022, according to reports.

Bale’s contract with Real Madrid is nearing its end, so in the summer he could become a free agent. This has left him thinking about his future, after months without seeing action with the meringues and almost no possibility of renewing.

But the difficult situation with Real Madrid might not be the end of his career. According to The Athletic, Bale would be willing to sign a short-term contract to stay in shape if his team qualifies for the World Cup.

In case of getting the pass to Qatar, it would be the first time since 1958 that Wales have attended a World Cup, and it would certainly be a perfect ending to Bale’s career, who will turn 33 in July.
