Gareth Bale’s agent rules out Premier League return

GARETH BALE’S agent says the Real Madrid star does NOT want a Premier League return this summer.

The Wales star, 30, continues to be linked with a move away from the Bernabeu after scoring just three goals in 18 games this season.

Manchester United and former side Tottenham are known to be admirers of the four-time Champions League winner.

Newcastle have even been tipped to make a bid by Brazil legend Rivaldo – if their £300m Saudi takeover goes through.

And reports claim Bale has already been snubbed by an unnamed MLS side due to his mammoth £650,000-a-week wages.

It’s reckoned Zinedine Zidane wants to offload the versatile forward after a string of injuries and failure to learn Spanish after seven years in Madrid.

Indeed, Bale recently pulled a golf pose during a training session after being jeered by Real fans who believe he enjoys the hobby more than playing for their club.

However, further reports claim there have been no offers for Bale yet.

And agent Jonathan Barnett insists the wing wizard has no plans to leave Real for the Premier League or any other destination.

Barnett told BBC Radio 4: “I have no idea what his value is.

“His salary is quite high and also where he wants to go is very important in his life. I can’t put a figure on it.

“It’s for the clubs to decide what they want to pay for him.

“As I’ve always said, he’s quite happy at Madrid. He has a very nice lifestyle, I don’t see why he wouldn’t see his career out in Madrid probably.

“It’s his life that he wants to lead. Financially he will want enough for the rest of his life and all his children and grandchildren. He’s won nearly everything in the world except the World Cup.

“To come back and play [in England] would be a big thing but I don’t think he wants to do that at the moment as he’s quite happy to play at Real Madrid.”
