Tottenham loanee Gareth Bale is considering an early retirement.


Bale, who is currently on loan at Tottenham, is due to return to the Spanish capital at the end of the season.


The Welshman has just over 12 months left to run on his current deal, and while it always seemed unlikely Bale would look to stick around at the Bernabeu, AS says he could now quit the game altogether.


Bale has made no bones about the fact a loan move to Spurs was part of his plan to get fit for the European Championship this summer.


Indeed, to avoid a re-occurrence of his numerous muscle injuries, Bale has drawn up his own individual training plan which has seen him take part in only three work-outs a week – one of them being a recovery session.
