According to some reports, Bale and Zinedine Zidane do not have a good relationship and he had to move elsewhere as he did not have a future atReal Madrid
The 31-year-old’s future is still not clear, with his return to Los Blancos being unlikely and finding a club who are willing to meet his wages appears tricky.
Since his contract is due to expire in 2022, a decision will soon be made but Bale insisted it will not hppen until the summer.
During an interview withfootball.london
, Bale said:
“I think for me, first and foremost I still have this season, and I still have plenty of games to go for the Euros.
“Obviously, going into next season, legally my contract says I have to go back to Real Madrid, which is what I stated, which I don’t think is being disrespectful to anybody. That’s legally what I have to do.
“Real Madrid are I guess my parent club and as far as I agreed I was on Tottenham on loan until the end of the season and I go back. That’s the plan so far.
“The reason I left was because I wanted to play games and get match fit and enjoy my football. Obviously come the summer I will go back to Real Madrid and we’ll go from there.
“I think the plan is to go back and then whether then I sit down with my agent is something we’ll do in the summer.”
