Real Madrid are expecting their Welsh star, Gareth Bale, to return to pre-season training ahead of the new campaign, and their new boss, Carlo Ancelotti, is hoping to bring the best out of Bale.
Bale was loaned out to Tottenham last season, where he starred before moving to Madrid, but he failed to impress in North London.
And rumours have since emerged that Bale could be ready to hang up his boots after Euro 2020, despite only being 31-years-old.
However, Madrid are expecting Bale to return to Los Blancos, and Ancelotti could be ready to hand him a second chance.
Real Madrid didn't spend on transfers last summer, and Madrid aren't expected to make a giant splash this summer, instead handing forgotten stars one more chance.
Ancelotti has previously worked with Bale – during his last spell at Los Blancos – and he wrote in his book: "Bale had fantastic world-class qualities.
"And all that I was trying to do was help him understand his core strengths so he could fulfil his potential."
Alongside Bale, Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema, who both had injury-stricken campaigns, are set to make their return to the Madrid first team.
