Bale Clears Up Real Madrid Comments

After Gareth Bale surprised many with certain comments about Real Madrid last week, he has now explained what he meant by his remarks that might have been seen as inconsiderate to Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale's Shock Price Tag Revealed?

Last week, the 32-year-old suggested that he will not be looking to remain at Spurs beyond this season, saying he returned to the London club on loan to get game time ahead of the 2020 UEFA European Championship.

Many were taken aback by Bale's remarks, especially considering his seemingly fractured relationship with Zinedine Zidane and the Spanish giants.

Now, the winger has insisted that he simply meant that, due to his contractual obligations, he has to go back to Spain, where he has a year left on his deal, but will give further thought as to where he will play his football in the coming campaign at a later stage.

"For me, first and foremost, I still have this season, still have plenty of games to go until the Euros," he said, according to The World Game.

"Going into next season, legally my contract says I have to go back to Real Madrid, which is what I stated. I don't think that was being disrespectful to anybody.

"Real Madrid are my parent club and, as far as I agreed, I'm on loan at Tottenham until the end of the season. That is the plan so far; the reason I left was because I wanted to play games and get match-fit, to enjoy my football.

"Obviously, come the summer I will go back to Real Madrid and we will go from there. I think the plan is to go back, whether then I sit down with my agent and decide something, we will do in the summer.

"I want to be playing, but in football it's not just about what you want – it's also about the other side. I'm concentrating on this season – obviously we have a big game tomorrow – a big end of the season with Tottenham, then the Euros in the summer.

"For me, at the moment, I don't need to worry about anything else than this season.
