Gareth Bale open to Premier League return in January?
Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale is reportedly open to returning to the Premier League at the turn of the year.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man was strongly tipped to leave the Madrid giants this summer after manager Zinedine Zidane personally admitted that Los Blancos are looking to sanction his departure.
However, the Welshman managed to change the club's stance with a positive beginning to the season but he could still leave the Bernabeu when the transfer window reopens.
According to Marca, Bale still has a strained relationship with Zidane despite the fact that the Frenchman has applauded his performances on the playing field this term.
It is added that the ex-Southampton graduate has his sights on making a Premier League comeback and that could happen as early as the January transfer window, should the right offer come by.
Bale, who has contributed two goals and an assist this season, was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier in the summer but they pulled out due to the overall cost of the deal.
