Once the brightest young star in the Premier League, Gareth Bale took his talents to La Liga in the most expensive football association transfer ever and has been sensational. Manchester United are believed to have even offered to break the transfer record again to secure Bale’s move to Old Trafford. Yet despite all of his accolades, rewards and accomplishments since joining Real Madrid though, there is one thing pulling Bale back to England that could very well be a factor in his decision to make a move.
Asked what he misses most about his home in England, the Wales forward admitted that the nation’s chocolate was one of the thing’s he misses most.
“Every time I come home, I go back with bags of the stuff. Galaxy, Dairy Milk — anything. I also miss PG Tips tea bags,” Bale said [per the Sun].
Bale has been having a bit of a down season after his incredible first season with Real Madrid followed by a trophy-free campaign in his following year. Now in his third year at the Bernabeu, Bale has just two goals in all competitions and rumours of his return to England have grown louder.
Nonetheless, Bale admitted that in spite of his criticism from Real Madrid fans he is happy in Spain – but stopped short of ruling out a return eventually.
“I know British players previously have struggled to adapt to life in another country, but I feel like I’ve grown up since I came over…
“I took myself out of my comfort zone and, yes, I do think it has improved me as a player, because I have learned a completely different style of football.
“I will never say never when it comes to going back to the Premier League, because you don’t know what the future holds.”
