Gareth Bale's agent has ruled out the prospect of the Real Madrid star returning to the Premier League.

The Welshman has been heavily linked with a return to these shores, with Manchester United regularly credited with showing an interest in the Cardiff-born star while Newcastle United have recently been touted as potential suitors.

His seemingly frosty relationship with Zinedine Zidane has often led many Madridistas calling for the man who has lifted four Champions Leagues during his time in the Spanish capital to be offloaded.

Bale still has two years left to run on his current deal with the La Liga powerhouses.

But his agent Jonathan Barnett has re-iterated that the 30-year-old is happy in Madrid, adding that Bale could see out his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"He has a very nice lifestyle. I don't see why he doesn't see his career out at Madrid probably," Barnett told Radio Four's Today programme.

"As I've always said, he's quite happy in Madrid.

"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 it at Real Madrid."

Bale joined Real Madrid for a then world record fee of £85m from Tottenham in 2013.

He has scored 105 times in his 249 appearances for the club.

The 2019/20 La Liga season is set to resume on June 11, with Real Madrid's first post-lockdown game against at home to Eibar set to take place three days later.
