Gareth Bale asked to dictate his own future.
According to former Real Madrid manager John Toshack, Bale should make a decision over his future by himself and not let his agent dictate.
The Welsh winger’s season-long loan at North London is nearing to an end and he will return to Los Blancos for the final year of his contract.
Zinedine Zidane is keen to offload the 31-year old to boost his transfer funds and John Toshack advised Bale to let his own aspirations dictate his own move.
“Often, it is not the player who is being controversial,” Toshack told Goal of Bale’s situation.
“You think that they represent footballers’ interests, but those of us in the world of football know that they often do more harm than good to their players.
“When a footballer used to tell me that their agent had said whatever, I always told them: ‘I don’t want to know what your agent said. I want to know what you think. I want to talk to you. No agents’.
“When a player reaches a certain age and only has one year of contract left, there are players who start to make noises. I would tell Bale: ‘Ignore your agent and make your mind up yourself.”
