Gareth Bale says he's planning to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan at Tottenham Hotspur.

The 31-year-old has become a regular for Jose Mourinho's side since Christmas and has found the net 10 times in his second spell in North London.

Bale's contract in Madrid runs through to the end of next season and he not anticipating a permanent move to Spurs this summer.

"I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost," the four-time Champions League winner said.

"Going into the Euros I wanted to be match-fit. The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid.

"My plan is to go back, that's as far I have planned."

Tottenham boss Mourinho recently admitted that Bale's future was up to his parent club rather than him.

"In relation to that you should contact your colleagues in Madrid and they should ask Zidane as he is a Real Madrid player.

"He is not a Tottenham player so Real Madrid have everything in their hands. They have a player with one year of contract and have the power in their hands."
