Welsh winger Gareth Bale has revealed that he intends to return to Spanish giants Real Madrid for the final 12 months of his contract next season.
Bale has been at Tottenham Hotspur on loan this season, initially struggling with fitness but playing regularly in recent weeks, but said ahead of the start of World Cup qualification with Wales this week that he plans to head back to Spain next season.
He has scored 10 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s side.
“There’s no distraction for me,” said Bale during a press conference ahead of Wales’ opening 2022 World Cup qualifier in Belgium.
“The main reason I came to Spurs this season was that I wanted to play football, first and foremost, but going into the Euros I wanted to be match fit too.”
Bale is set to skipper Wales at the European Championship in June.
“The original plan was only to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros, I still have a year left at Real Madrid and my plan is to go back,” he concluded.
