Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, Gareth Bale has been promised a starring role at Real Madrid.

Previously limited to sporadic appearances in the starting XI under Zinedine Zidane, the Welshman was considering a move away from the club but new manager Julen Lopetegui has convinced the winger to stay and play a key role.

According to the Sun, Madrid are prepared to offer Bale a new and improved contract as they make him their leading man.

The likes of Tottenham and Manchester United have been interested in splurging on the 29-year-old but with Madrid either unable or unwilling to sign a replacement for Ronaldo, Bale is set to stay put.
