Bale: I know what my plans are but I won't say until after Euros
After scoring twice in Spurs' final-day Premier League win over Leicester, on-loan Real Madrid man Gareth Bale said he doesn't want to "cause chaos".
Gareth Bale says he knows what his plans are for next season but won’t reveal them until after playing for Wales at Euro 2020, claiming he’d "cause chaos" if he lifted the lid on his future now.
Bale grabs brace for Spurs on Premier League final day
Bale, who is on a season-long loan at Tottenham from Real Madrid, scored twice on Sunday as Spurs beat Leicester City 4-2 to finish seventh in the Premier League.
AS reported earlier this week that the forward, whose Madrid contract runs until 2022, is keen to return to Spain this summer to complete the remaining year of his deal, before potentially retiring from playing.
Bale: "It just has to happen after the Euros"
Speaking to Sky Sports after his double at the King Power Stadium, Bale said: "It [confirmation of his plans] just has to happen after the Euros. I know what I'm doing but it'll just cause chaos if I say anything now."
The 31-year-old added: "I am not thinking about anything other than Wales."
Bale scored 16 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions this season for Spurs, a club where he spent six successful years before joining Madrid for a then-world-record 100 million euros in 2013.
He has won four Champions Leagues and scored 105 goals in 251 games for Madrid, but became a peripheral figure under Bernabéu head coach Zinedine Zidane, making just 16 appearances for Los Blancos in the 2019/20 season.
Wales begin Euro 2020 on 12 June
Wales kick off their European Championship campaign against Switzerland in Baku on 12 June, having been drawn in a group also featuring Turkey and Italy.
