Earlier this week, Bale confirmed he will return to Real at the end of this season when his loan deal at Tottenham expires.

Asked about his future plans when on international duty with Wales, the winger said: “It’s no distraction for me coming into the Euros.

“The main reason I came to Spurs this year was I wanted to play football first and foremost. But coming into the Euros I wanted to be match fit.

“The original plan was only to do a season at Spurs, then after the Euros, I’ll still have a year left at Real Madrid and my plan is to go back.

“That’s as far as I’ve planned to be honest.”

But Calderon, 69 – Real president between 2006 and 2009 – is wary about how Los Blancos fans will react.

He told TalkSPORT: “Fans are very volatile, it depends on his performances.

“If he’s going to play well and score goals like he did when he first came then fans will back him. But if he’s not then problems will come again.

“This club is very demanding, I remember with [Zinedine] Zidane they were booing him for the first five months because they thought we’ve paid a lot of money for a player that wasn’t playing as they expected.

“I’m sure fans will be backing him if he does things well.”

Asked why the Welshman is looking to return to the Spanish giants, Calderon said: “He’s not happy about his time at Tottenham and Jose Mourinho doesn’t seem to be very happy either.

“He’s not counting on him in many matches and Bale is disappointed and maybe that’s the reason he would like to return.”
