Gareth Bale has revealed that he is planning on returning to Real Madrid after his temporary deal with Tottenham Hotspur expires.
The Welshman rejoined the London club on a loan deal from the Spanish giants during the summer transfer window, an agreement that is set to run until the end of the campaign.
Despite suggestions that Spurs could look to extend the deal, Bale has insisted that he has already penciled in a return to his parent club.
Talking in a press conference whilst on international duty, the winger said: “There’s no distraction for me. I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost.
“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.”
Bale has had endured a rollercoaster campaign at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium throughout 2020/21. He only started one Premier League game before New Year but has still managed to score 10 goals in all competitions for the club.
The 31-year-old will hope to be on the scoresheet once more on Wednesday evening as Wales do battle with Belgium in a World Cup qualifier. Bale can be backed at a price of 12/1 with Betfair to net the opening goal of the game.
