The Wales international has spent the 2020-21 campaign in north London, but his plan is to head back to Santiago Bernabeu this summer
Gareth Bale has stated his intention to “go back” to Real Madrid once a season-long loan at Tottenham comes to an end.
The Wales international returned to familiar surroundings at the start of the 2020-21 campaign after finding himself frozen out at Santiago Bernabeu under Zinedine Zidane.
There has been no changed in the dugout back in Spain, while it has taken a while for a proven performer to produce his best at Spurs, but the 31-year-old’s intention is to see out the final year of his contract with La Liga giants.
Asked about his future plans ahead of Wales’ opening 2022 World Cup qualifier against Belgium, Bale has 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.”
