Real Madrid star Gareth Bale confirms plan to quit Tottenham Hotspur

Gareth Bale revealed he is planning to return to Real Madrid this summer at the end of his Tottenham Hotspur loan.

Bale returned to Spurs last summer after falling out of favour under Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and signed up for a season-long loan with his former club.

The Wales captain, 31, has another year left on his £31million-a-year contract at Real Madrid and Bale admitted he is planning for another season with the side he has won four Champions Leagues with.

‘There’s no distraction for me. I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost,’ Bale said in a press conference.

‘Going into the Euros I wanted to be match-fit. The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid.’

‘My plan is to go back, that’s as far I have planned.’

The Welsh winger also admitted it was nice to get away from his club after a string of poor results – which included a shock Europa League exit to Dinamo Zagreb – to get a mental break on international duty.

‘I always think when things aren’t going too well at a club, it’s nice to mentally get away from the environment,’ Bale added. 

‘It can be a benefit. We focus on these games, which are very important for us. 

‘We forget club life and concentrate on this.’ 

The winger struggled to get to match fitness during the early months of his loan spell but showed good form in recent months.

He has scored five goals in 12 Premier League appearances and a further five goals in cup competitions.
