Real Madrid star Gareth Bale open to Premier League return: it is something I'd look at for sure

Bale's Santiago Bernabeu career appears to be over.

The Welshman is open to leaving but insists it's up to the club.

Speaking to Sky Sports away on international duty with Wales, Gareth Bale said: "If those options arise [interest from Premier League clubs] it is something I'd look at for sure.

"We'll see what happens, we have plenty of time in this transfer window and a couple of others as well. Time will tell but mainly I think the reason is that the decision is in Real Madrid's hands.

"I tried to leave last year but they blocked everything at the last second. It was a project I was excited for but it didn't materialise. There have been other instances where we have tried to go but the club won't allow it or they've done something.

"It's down to the club. I want to play football, I am still motivated to play football, so I guess it's on the club. They are in control of everything. I have a contract, all I can do is carry on what I am doing and hopefully something comes up.

"I am only 31 still but I feel I am in great shape still and feel like I have a lot to give. We will see what happens. It's in the club's hands but they make things very difficult to be honest."

Bale was left out of the Champions League squad to face Manchester City last month, with Zinedine Zidane signalling that the Welshman's career at Madrid is well and truly over.

The 31-year-old, who has two years left on his Santiago Bernabeu contract, currently pockets £350,000-per-week after tax and the Blancos would love to get it off their wage bill. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
