One-time Manchester United target Gareth Bale is considering a return to the Premier League in two years time.
As reported by the Daily Telegraph, Bale may make the move back to England in 2016 as his young daughter, Alba Violet Bale, will be reaching school age.
Bale, who was linked with Manchester United prior to his move to the Bernabeu, moved to the Spanish capital with his partner Emma Rhys-Jones and their daughter, but the family may look to return in two years time to raise Alba Violet in the English education system.
That would alert Manchester United, who were prepared to spend more than Real Madrid last summer to land the then-Spurs winger.
Real Madrid sit third in La Liga in what is shaping up to be an extremely tight title race, and Bale is the club's third highest scorer with 13 in 21 starts in the league so far. He also has 12 assists.
Before he left Spurs for Spain, United were heavily linked - although it was always Bale's dream to play for Real Madrid.
But if he were to return to England, only a handful of clubs would be able to afford him. One of those would be Manchester United - even if they miss out on the Champions League next season.
Their competition would likely come from Chelsea and Manchester City, two of the richest clubs in the world.
