Bale not interested in a Premier League return
Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is not interested in returning to the Premier League and is ready to finish his career at Real Madrid. This was revealed by his agent Jonathan Barnett.
However, with the various controversies that have sprung up in his time at the Bernabeu, it’s very difficult seeing the Welshman hang his boots at Real Madrid. Well, never say never because things change.
The Welshman is one player that has divided the opinions of Real Madrid fans as some are cool with him while others are not. This is due to a perceived lack of commitment and his inability to be readily available due to his poor injury record.
The Welshman was very close to a departure from Madrid and a move to Chinses club Jiangsu Suning last year but the deal didn’t materialize.
“He has a very nice lifestyle. I don’t see why he doesn’t see his career out at Madrid probably,” Barnett said in a chat with the BBC.
“… To come back and play (in the Premier League) would be unbelievable — a big thing. I don’t think he wants to do that at the moment. He’s quite happy to play at Real.”
Gareth Bale was a key man at Tottenham Hotspur under Harry Redknapp and was very instrumental for the North Londoners as he carved a niche for himself as one of the best players in the Premier League.
His pace down the flanks for Spurs was key to his emergence and this was displayed wholly in a UEFA Champions League game against Inter Milan where he took renowned defenders to the cleaners with his burst of electric pace.
The Welshman was arguably the best player in England before Los Blancos came calling for his signature.
Since then, he has also played his part in UCL, La Liga, Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Copa del Rey, and Spanish Supercup triumphs for the Galacticos.
Meanwhile, the Welshman will be expecting to be called on when Real Madrid resume La Liga hostilities on June 14 against Eibar at the Bernabeu.
This is coming after three months of no football due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully, they start on a winning note and put the pressure on rivals Barcelona in the race for the 2019/20 La Liga title.
