Gareth Bale visited Cardiff’s training base where it is believed he held transfer talks with manager Steve Morison.
The Wales legend is currently a free agent after confirming his departure from Real Madrid.
And rumours of a sensational return to his place of birth has since followed with Bale on the hunt for a new side.
It comes after he led Wales to a first World Cup in 64 years following their 1-0 play-off final triumph over war-torn Ukraine.
In a recent development, the winger spoke with Cardiff boss Morison and discussed his future, according to WalesOnline, via The Sun.
They claim Bale was undertaking physio at the club’s Vale of Glamorgan HQ with the FAW’s medical staff.
Furthermore manager Morison, whose players were in attendance for pre-season, spoke to the player himself.
Bale has just returned from a getaway but it set to jet off again soon until July 16.
But it believed he will confirm his next move “in the coming days” instead of doing so when he lands home.
When Bale was asked about his options at club level this month, he grinned and said: “I’ve got loads”.
MLS clubs have already declared an interest in the forward but it is believed Tottenham are not considering him for a third spell in North London.
Another of Bale’s ex-clubs Southampton have also been linked with Wales’ record goalscorer.
