Fabrizio Romano has dismissed the rumours suggesting that Gareth Bale could retire after the European Championship, claiming instead that a return to Tottenham is on the cards for the Welshman.
Contradictory reports have emerged regarding Bale’s future over the past couple of weeks, with some sources suggesting that Spurs have the option to extend his loan deal by another year.
However, The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has claimed that no such agreement exists and that Tottenham would have to re-negotiate a new deal with Real Madrid to bring the forward back to the club.
Some Spanish publications suggested on Tuesday that the 31-year-old might even decide to terminate his contract with the La Liga giants and call time on his career after the European Championship, although that was rubbished by his agent.
Romano has also now insisted that Bale has no plans of retiring and revealed that Tottenham are planning to hold talks with Real Madrid about re-signing the forward once they have a new manager in place.
Gareth Bale is not planning to retire after the Euros. Despite rumours, Bale is waiting to decide his future – he’s still under contract with Real Madrid and Tottenham meeting will take place once the new manager is appointed. But he’s not retiring: fake. ⚪️🏴 #Real #THFC
