Bale to reunite with Ronaldo in Italy?

Bale, 29, continues to generate exit talk in Spain and has seen moves to the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich mooted in recent windows.

Under the pressures of filling the boots of club-record goalscorer Ronaldo, the Welsh wizard has come under increasing scrutiny by fans and Spanish media alike, as Los Blanco's inconsistencies in the league saw manager Julen Lopetegui lose his job.

And now Bales agent, Barnett told Tuttosport that his client would consider moving to Italy, despite admitting he remains happy at the 13-time European champions.

"Gareth is very happy at Real Madrid, but if we’re talking about the future then nothing is impossible in the transfer market," he said.

"Ronaldo was an important loss for Real Madrid. Gareth loved playing with Cristiano, but he’s happy because he’s at a top club.

“It’s true that since CR7 arrived the foreign superstars are starting to consider Serie A and start looking at it in a different way compared to the last years.”

Bale has scored 74 goals and registered 42 assists in 138 LaLiga outings since joining Los Blancos from Tottenham in 2013 in a then world-record €100m transfer.
