Gareth Bale's agent says that the Real Madrid attacker does not want to return to the Premier League this summer.

Gareth Bale's agent has effectively ruled out the Real Madrid attacker returning to the Premier League during this summer's transfer window.

The 30-year-old has only scored three times in 18 appearances for Los Blancos during the current season, and there remains widespread speculation surrounding the Wales international's future.

Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United have all been linked with possible moves for the former Southampton left-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, Bale's representative Jonathan Barnett has claimed that the attacker is not currently interested in a return to English football and could "see his career out at Madrid".

"He has a very nice lifestyle. I don't see why he doesn't see his career out at Madrid probably," Barnett told BBC Sport. "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 at Real Madrid."

Bale has won one La Liga title, one Copa del Rey and four Champions League trophies with Madrid, where he has a contract until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.
