Bale reveals his plan for next season

Gareth Bale reveals his plan for next season as Tottenham loan nears its end

March 23, 2021 By Ali M.
Will the Welsh superstar make his Tottenham stay permanent or will he return to the Bernabeu? The 31-year-old has revealed all.

After enduring a torrid past few seasons at Real Madrid, Gareth Bale sealed a fairy-tale return to Tottenham, joining his former club for the 2020/21 season. While his second spell in north London did not get off to a great start, the Welshman has since turned things around, contributing to six goals in his last five appearances in the Premier League.

The 31-year-old has a total of five goals in the English top-flight this term, with four of those coming in the last three weeks. The Los Blancos talent scored a brace in the 4-0 win over Brighton and completed another two-goal haul in Spurs' 4-1 triumph over Crystal Palace while racking up two assists in his last five outings.

However, given that Bale is only on loan at Tottenham, many have wondered what is in store for the Welshman come next season. Would he return to Real Madrid to rot on the bench under Zidane or would he make his Spurs stay a permanent one? The attacker has finally given everyone an answer, revealing that his plan for 2021/22 is to return to the Bernabeu.

The 31-year-old has one more year left on his Real Madrid contract and admitted he intends on seeing out his deal, with the one and only goal of his north London return being to get playing time for the upcoming Euro 2020. 

"There's no distraction for me. I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost," Bale said, as per the Daily Mail.  

"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."

Why hasn't Bale's homecoming convinced him to remain in England? One reason could be Jose Mourinho, with the Welshman failing to make the grade – for the most part – under the Special One. 

The Portuguese tactician has questioned the loanee's commitment and while his form has picked up as of late, Gareth tends to be subbed off or left on the bench whenever things aren't going well at Tottenham. In fact, Bale is yet to complete the whole 90 minutes in the Premier League this season.
