Gareth Bale has not ruled out a move to Bayern Munich in the summer, but insists his only concern is to do well for Real Madrid.

Bale's future at the Bernabeu has been the subject of speculation for several months with a return to the Premier League a possibility.

The 28-year-old, who joined Real Madrid from Tottenham in September 2013 for a then world record transfer fee of £85million, said he was flattered to be linked with the Bundesliga champions.

"You can never rule out anything in football," Bale told the German newspaper Bild.

"Currently, I play football at Real Madrid and I enjoy that.

"Bayern have a fantastic squad and already in the past they have always been one of the most successful clubs in Europe.

"It's an honour for everyone to be linked with this club.

"But as of now I am a Real Madrid player."

Marcos Alonso has ruled out a return to Real Madrid in the summer, insisting his future is at Chelsea.

The defender, who made his debut for Spain in their 6-1 win over Argentina, joined the Blues in the summer of 2016 and has established himself as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.

Reports have linked the 27-year-old with a return to the Spanish capital, but Alonso insists he is staying at Stamford Bridge.

"I have not considered that possibility (returning to Madrid), I just try to give the best of me and my team," Alonso told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"I made my (Madrid) debut with (Manuel) Pellegrini in 2009/10, and that summer I had the opportunity to go to the Premier League.

"I don't know what would've happened if I stayed, I live in the present."
