Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has given Manchester United hope of a return to the Premier League in an exclusive interview with the Daily Mirror.
However, he has confessed that at 26, as he reaches his peak, he is glad to be playing at the pinnacle of the game in the Spanish capital.
“My plan when I first started playing football was to try to reach the pinnacle – and Real Madrid is THE pinnacle,” he said.
“Now I’m here, I want to win trophies and to win titles, and just do the best I can for my career.
“I had conversations with Rafa in the summer and I am delighted about where I am going to be playing this season.
“I like the role behind the striker and feel that’s my position. I can drift into areas, find the space and, when I get the ball, I can attack. It’s my best position – and I think this year is going to be a great season.”
And though he admitted that he is happy at the club, he confirmed that he would not be ruling out a return to the Premier League at some point in the future.
“I will never say never when it comes to going back to the Premier League, because you don’t know what the future holds. But I am enjoying my time here. I am very happy.”
