Bale on Tottenham future: ‘Legally I have to return to Real Madrid’

“The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid,” he said. “My plan is to go back, that’s as far I have planned.”

He told BBC Sport Wales: “There’s no timescale [on a decision]. He is just concentrating on now.”

Bale has echoed his agent’s remarks, telling reporters on Monday: “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.”

He added: “Of course I want to be playing, but other things might get in the way. Obviously in football it’s not just about what you want. It’s the other side.
