Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid continues to be a subject of uncertainty ahead of the new season.

The Welshman was left on the bench for Madrid’s 2-0 defeat at home to Real Betis in the final game of the La Liga campaign and showed his displeasure with the situation by heading straight down the tunnel at the end of the match instead of joining his teammates for an end of season lap of honour to thank the fans for their support.

Bale has found first-team opportunities limited since Zinedine Zidane returned in charge of Los Blancos and is certainly not held in high regard by their supporters.

The 30-year-old has been linked with a return to the Premier League at Manchester United or former club Spurs (The Times).

Darren Bent, who was at Tottenham during Bale’s time in North London believes that a possible return to the club is a possibility given the direction in which Mauricio Pochettino’s side is going.

He told Sky Sports: “I can see him coming back [to England] but where is the difficulty,”

“You look at Spurs and he knows the club, they’re going in the right direction, a new stadium, brilliant manager, young team.

“He’ll go to where suits him best and he’ll have a number of options. When you look at the teams in the Premier League, it comes down to Tottenham and Manchester United.”

Opinion

The biggest stumbling block for Spurs will be Bale’s extraordinary salary that he earns in Madrid.  He will no doubt add some considerable value to the Tottenham attack however it seems almost impossible how Daniel Levy could work on a deal to factor in his wages without upsetting the existing players in N17.

  1. Bale is a skilled but injury prone, disinterested, over the hill ex star. Reacquiring him would destroy the progress of the past 5 years. He is not a fit at Spurs. He might have a year of contribution if he came as a free transfer at 50K per week. Bale is a huge problem foe Zidane and Perez and Spurs should not help them solve it. bale could help Spurs if he went to Man U.
