Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is all set to make an exit from Real Madrid, confirmed his agent Jonathan Barnett. Bale is set to part ways with the club at the end of the season and is likely to return to the Premier League.

It is being reported that Bale, who had spent the previous season on loan with the Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, will make a final call regarding his future after his international commitments with the Welsh national team as he will be participating in the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

The 32-year-old has featured in just five matches for the Los Blancos in the Spanish top-tier league this season as they not only reclaimed the domestic title but also have a chance of lifting the Champions League when they take on Liverpool in the final.

“He will leave Real Madrid, but we have to wait for what Wales will be able to do [in their Qatar 2022 qualifiers],” Barnett was quoted by Record.

“It all depends on whether Wales qualify for the World Cup, then we will make a decision, which may vary whether or not Wales goes to the World Cup,” he added.

“Is it more likely to return to England? I think so, but we’ll have to wait and see if Wales qualifies for the World Cup,” he further said.

Other than having fallen out of favour recently with his current club, even the fans at the Santiago Bernabeu have made their dislike for Bale evident with their boos and gestures. This could be yet another reason why Bale would want to end his long association with the club.

For the unversed, Bale had joined Madrid from the Spurs back in 2013 for a record fee of £80 million. Despite his status at the club currently, it would not be wrong to term him a club legend with him having bagged netted 106 goals and 67 assists in 258 appearances across all tournaments, aiding the Spanish giants to as many as four UEFA Champions League medals.
