Gareth Bale has no future at Real Madrid next season with the club set on offloading him permanently this summer.

Bale rejoined Spurs on a season-long loan deal last summer but the deal does not include the option or obligation to make the arrangement permanent.

The Wales international announced this week his intention is to return to Real Madrid this summer, where his contact expires in the summer of 2022.

His agent Jonathan Barnett later insists Bale’s comments were ‘taken completely out of context’ and that it was ‘too early’ to guess where his client will be playing next season.

Marca report however Real have already decided the forward will not be part of their plans next season and are eager to remove his wages – thought to be close to £30million-a-year – from their wage bill.

Getting rid of Bale will help the club make some much-needed additions to the squad with Los Blancos hopeful of bringing in David Alaba from Bayern Munich.

The club are also reportedly keen on one of Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland or Harry Kane.

Bale struggled to get to match fitness during the early months of his loan spell but showed good form in recent months.

He has scored five goals in 12 Premier League appearances and a further five goals in cup competitions.
