- Bale is with the Welsh national team as they prepare for a Nations League tie with Finland
Gareth Bale has expressed his desire to leave Real Madrid this summer only if the Spanish club would permit him.
The Welshman was set to play in the Chinese Super League last season but the move was stopped at the eleventh hour by Los Blancos.
To add to his woes, Bale has been frozen out of Zinedine Zidane's first team after experiencing only 100 minutes of action after the three-month break.
But the 31-year-old revealed he feels more at home when he played for the national team guided by Ryan Giggs as the Dragons prepare for their Nation League tie with Finland.
Bale said: "It's one of those situations if those options arise it's something I would look at, for sure. We'll see what happens.
"We have plenty of time in this transfer window and I guess a couple of others as well. Time will tell.
"It's not really in my hands, the decision is in Real Madrid's hands. They make things very difficult to be honest.
"Whatever goes on at Madrid doesn't really affect me. Everyone knows how passionate I am to play for Wales and how much I love coming away with Wales.
"I come here excited to play football and motivated to do well and get back to playing football where I belong."
