Gareth Bale needs to sit down with Real Madrid to resolve the ongoing uncertainty around his future at the club, according to John Toshack.
The former Real Madrid and Wales manager also believes Bale would benefit from being more open in public about his issues at the club.
The 31-year-old has been out of favour under Zinedine Zidane this season, making just 20 appearances in all competitions and looking noticeably awkward during Madrid’s La Liga title celebrations.
Bale almost left for China at the start of the season but now looks destined to remain on the periphery at the Santiago Bernabeu unless another club matches his €15 million (£13.7m/$17.2m) per year wages.
That stagnation has left a feeling that Bale is letting his talent go to waste as he nears the end of his peak years – and Toshack wants to see the situation resolved.
“Very often these things happen,” Toshack told BBC Radio Wales.
“Things don’t turn out and the coach has got other ideas and you’ve got to sit down and work it out.
“I think there’s got to be some kind of dialogue there and they’ve got to sit down.”
