Bale on Premier League return as he hits out at "very difficult" Real Madrid

Gareth Bale has opened the door to a potential Premier League return this summer after admitting he would consider any offers.

The 31-year-old Welsh forward has been ostracised at Real Madrid, with his relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane seemingly at an all-time low.

He almost left for Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last summer before Madrid cancelled the move after demanding a transfer fee at the last moment.

And speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Wales' upcoming Nations League games against Finland and Bulgaria, the former Tottenham star claimed his future is in Madrid's hands.

"I tried to leave last year and they blocked everything at the last second," Bale said. "It was a project I was excited for last year but it didn't materialise.

"There's been other times where we've tried to go but the club won't allow it or they've done something, so I guess it's down to them.

"What can I say? I want to play football, I'm still motivated to play football so I guess it's on the club. I can't really do much."

Bale added his belief that Madrid are a difficult club to deal with, but says he and his agent have not given up hope of him finding a move before the end of the current transfer window.

"They're in control of everything, I have a contract and all I can do is carry on doing what I'm doing and hopefully something comes up," he added.

"It's not really in my hands. They (Madrid) make things very difficult to be honest. I think it's one of those situations where if those options arise it is something I would look at, for sure, and we'll see what happens.

"We have plenty of time left in this transfer window and I guess a couple of others as well."

The likes of Spurs and Manchester United have been linked with a move for Bale in the past, but his current contract runs until June 2022, and he has previously insisted that he is happy to see it out despite his lack of playing time.
