On-loan Tottenham ace Gareth Bale wants swansong season at Real Madrid
Having left Tottenham for Real Madrid in 2013, the Welsh wing-wizard enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at Santiago Bernabeu, before falling out of favour under manager Zinedine Zidane. And, the 31-year-old ended up securing a return to Tottenham on a season-long loan deal.
Upon his arrival, it was claimed that Tottenham have the option of extending his stay at the club for another year on loan beyond the current season.
However, it seems like Bale has his heart set on a return to Real Madrid come the end of the season, as he wishes to enjoy a swansong season at the club. This has been brought about by the uncertainty surrounding Zidane’s job at the club. (h/t Daily Mail)
It is being reported that Zidane is under pressure after an inconsistent start to the campaign and could be sacked or might himself resign at the end of the season, opening the door for Bale’s potential return to Real Madrid.
The report further adds that even if the Frenchman stays, Bale could remain a Real Madrid player for the next season as club president Florentino Perez is a huge admirer of the Welshman.

Since returning to Tottenham in the summer, Bale has found things difficult, with fitness issues holding him back. He has made just nine appearances for us this term, scoring two goals.
While his return was celebrated with a lot of fanfare, things haven’t exactly gone according to plans, at least up until now. And if things fail to improve over the course of the season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the club pass up on extending his loan deal or attempting to sign him permanently.
