Gareth Bale has refused to rule out the possibility of returning to Tottenham Hotspur one day.

The Wales international sealed a world-record £83.5m transfer to Real Madrid from Spurs last summer and helped the Spanish giant win their 10th Champions League title last season.

But Bale, who joined Spurs from Southampton in 2007, says he could return to the north London club in the future.

“I’ll never forget the great European nights at White Hart Lane. They were amazing,” Bale, who scored 15 goals for Madrid last season, told BT Sport.

“Tottenham will always have a place in my heart. I hope the fans still love me even though I’ve moved on.

“I love Spurs fans; you never know, I could come back one day.”

He added: “I hope they understand that obviously Real Madrid is a massive, massive club and that they respect my decision.

“From the moment Madrid put the offer in it was difficult. [Tottenham] was somewhere I felt so comfortable and so happy.”
