Gareth Bale’s agent provides fresh update on potential Tottenham return

Gareth Bale’s agent provides fresh update on potential Tottenham return

 

The agent of Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has spoken out over the possibility of his client returning to Tottenham ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Second Spurs stint

Welsh international Bale of course made the move back 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.

And Bale’s time back with the Lilywhites subsequently proved something of a mixed bag, with the 31-year-old, at times, having been accused of looking altogether disinterested.

In other moments, however, Bale proved 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, meanwhile, Bale instantly found the net in a meeting with Southampton, before notching a hat-trick amid a wonderful individual display versus Sheffield United.

All told, the Welshman racked up a none too shabby 16 goals across all competitions.

‘No option’

In turn, it subsequently came as little surprise, upon the campaign’s completion, to see calls mount amongst the Spurs faithful for their on-loan winger to be brought back for another year.

And, as outlined above, on Monday, Bale’s representative has been drawn on the possibility of exactly that.

If the latest comments on the part of Jonathan Barnett are anything to go by, however, then Tottenham’s supporters need not get their hopes up any time soon:

‘As I have said from the beginning, there is no option’ (for Bale to rejoin Spurs).

‘Gareth has no agreements whatsoever. He is under contract to Real.’
