REAL MADRID will let Gareth Bale leave the club this summer which will open the door for a potential return to the Premier League.
Manchester United and Tottenham are both interested in signing Bale but Madrid won’t let him leave on a free.
Madrid are aware that they will not recover the £86million transfer fee they paid for Bale, but are prepared to listen to offers of around £22million for the Welsh ace according to MundoDeportivo.
United were previously linked to Bale and are keen on bringing him to Old Trafford, according to Marca.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is an admirer of Bale, and would like to bring him back to the club, but Spurs currently do not have the cash so a deal looks unlikely.
Bale’s relationship with Madrid has deteriorated over the years and boss Zidane has made it clear that he has no future with the club.

In a recent interview, Bale claimed that Madrid are making it very difficult for him to leave the Bernabeu.
He said: “It’s not really in my hands, the decision is in Real Madrid’s hands. They make things very difficult to be honest.
“I want to play football. I’m still motivated to play football. I guess it’s on the club. I can’t do much. They are in control of everything.”
Bale has won four Champions League titles in Spain but played just 100 minutes of their previous 12 games since the lockdown.
He has two years left on his contract, but Madrid don’t want to give him a pay-off, which could see the 31-year-old rot in the reserves for another season if a move isn’t completed.
