Bale's agent reveals his client is now happy in Real Madrid

An unexpected turn of the situation with Wales international Gareth Bale as he now does not want to come back to England and is likely to finish his career at Real Madrid, according to his agent Jonathan Barnett.

The 30-year-old winger has been linked with a return to England for a longer period due to his 'status' in the club, and due to the relationship with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

He almost went to China last summer but the deal was uncompleted at the end and he stayed in Madrid.

"He has a very nice lifestyle. I don't see why he doesn't see his career out at Madrid probably," Barnett said.

Welshman was linked with a return to former club Tottenham Hotspur and with the new finance giants, Newcastle United - subject to their takeover being completed, among the latest clubs mentioned.

His agent now has a different story after a few months of lockdown, reportedly, Bale is thinking nowadays different than three months.

He has a right to change his opinion, after all, it's his career. Thus he said he enjoys golf rather than playing for Madrid.

Bale joined Los Blancos for a world record 100m euros fee in 2012/13 season and has won four Champions Leagues trophies, one La Liga title and one Copa del Rey, as well as less important but worth mentioning: three Club World Cups, three Uefa Super Cups, and one Spanish Super Cup.

"As I've always said, he's quite happy in Madrid," Barnett told BBC Radio 4's Today program.

"It's his life that he wants to lead. Financially, he will want for nothing the rest of his life, and his children and grandchildren.

"He's won nearly everything in the world, except the World Cup, but unfortunately he plays for Wales so some things are beyond him.

"So he's won everything else, to come back and play [in the Premier League] would be unbelievable - a big thing. "I don't think he wants to do that at the moment. He's quite happy to play at Real Madrid."

Barnett, as one of the experienced world agents, also told the BBC he does not see top players' salaries to fall because of coronavirus, although he does not anticipate any huge transfers this summer.
