The Welshman made a sensational return to his former club Tottenham on loan last summer, although it was a very strange season for Bale.
He struggled for minutes in the first half of the season before Jose Mourinho and eventually Ryan Mason threw him into the starting XI to great effect.
Bale ended up netting an impressive 11 goals and recorded two assists in 20 Premier League games. In all competitions, he managed 16 goals and three assists (TransferMarkt).
Ancelotti, now in charge of Madrid, has already claimed that Bale could have a great season for them, but added that he needs to make his assessment calmly and see whether the Wales star wants to play for Los Blancos.
AFP journalist, Tom Allnutt, also revealed that Bale was still likely to leave Real Madrid as he remains a financial problem for the club.
Marca claim that there could be a role for Bale at Madrid but also that Ancelotti would accept an exit if a suitable offer arrived. The report adds that another wage-sharing loan is unlikely for Spurs this summer but they could look for a permanent deal.
