The agent of Tottenham loanee Gareth Bale has provided a fresh update on his client’s future.
Second Spurs stint
Welsh international Bale of course made the return to north London last summer.
On the back of another disappointing campaign in the Spanish capital with Real Madrid, Los Blancos decided that their one-time record signing would be allowed to depart on loan.
Spurs, in turn, swooped, in what was widely viewed at the time as a savvy piece of business on the part of Daniel Levy and co.
Bale’s time back with the Lilywhites, all told, has since proven something of a mixed bag, with the 31-year-old, at times, having been accused of looking altogether disinterested.
In other moments, however, Bale has proven a genuine asset for Spurs, looking close to his scintillating best.
During one particularly fruitful patch between mid-February and early March, the veteran attacker racked up six goals and three assists across six appearances.
On the back of Jose Mourinho’s departure from north London, meanwhile, Bale instantly found the net in a meeting with Southampton, before notching a hat-trick amid a wonderful individual display versus Sheffield United.

‘Future at Real Madrid?’
In turn, it has come as little surprise to see calls begin to mount amongst the Spurs faithful for their on-loan Welshman to be brought back for another season.
And, if the latest comments on the part of his agent are anything to go by, then such a possibility can seemingly not be ruled out.
Speaking during an interview with the Evening Standard on Monday, Jonathan Barnett was drawn on his client’s future, and whether or not a return to Real Madrid looks feasible.
And Bale’s agent went on to confirm that negotiations between Los Blancos and Tottenham are imminent, with a move back to the Spanish capital looking altogether unlikely:
Gareth Bale agent to Evening Standard: “It’s a three-party discussion; it’s us, Real and Tottenham. We have our views and we will let them know. Future at Real Madrid for Bale? I very much doubt that… but if they want to put him on the bench then that’s fine”. ⚪️ #THFC #Real
