Gareth Bale has revealed he would consider Premier League return if Real Madrid let him leave amid the transfer interest from Tottenham and Manchester United.
The winger has found his playing time limited with Los Blancos, making just 2 appearances for the club after the restart of the season, following the lockdown. The Wales international almost left Zinedine Zidane’s side to make a move to China last summer, though the transfer didn’t materialise.
Now the 31-year-old has been linked with the return to his former side Tottenham, while Manchester United have also joined the race for him. And speaking about his future at the Spanish club, Bale told Sky Sports News: “I think everyone knows how much I love coming away with Wales. It’s nice to be back at a place where you are a little bit more appreciated and supported by your fans no matter what.
“If those options arise (interest from Premier League clubs) it is something I’d look at for sure.
“We’ll see what happens, we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well. Time will tell but mainly I think the reason is that the decision is in Real Madrid’s hands.
“I tried to leave last year but they blocked everything at the last second. It was a project I was excited for but it didn’t materialise.
“There have been other instances where we have tried to go but the club won’t allow it or they’ve done something. It’s down to the club.
“I want to play football, I am still motivated to play football, so I guess it’s on the club. They are in control of everything. I have a contract, all I can do is carry on what I am doing and hopefully something comes up.
“I am only 31 still but I feel I am in great shape still and feel like I have a lot to give. We will see what happens. It’s in the club’s hands but they make things very difficult to be honest.”
