Gareth Bale could retire already at the end of the 2021/22 season, The Athletic's David Ornstein reports.
This could happen if Wales fail to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Bale's national team have only qualified for the playoffs so far. Wales take on Austria in March; if they win, they will have to beat the winner of the Scotland-Ukraine pair to get to the group stage.
The Welshman is expected to leave Real Madrid in the summer. As things stand, there are seemingly no teams who would like to sign the 32-year-old.
