Last Sunday saw Spurs return to winning ways with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Sheffield United.
It was the perfect way to ease some heartbreak following the Carabao Cup Final defeat. However, it was the man left out from the starting eleven that day who made the headlines.
Gareth Bale hit a stunning hat-trick to ensure Tottenham kept their slim top-four chances alive.
Despite having limited game-time, the Welshman remains the club’s third top scorer in the league this season. In sixteen league appearances, Bale has scored nine goals and assisted two (TransferMarkt).
However, Troy Deeney believes the remaining few games of the season will be the last fans will see of the 31-year-old at Spurs.
Speaking on the future of Bale, the Watford striker told TalkSport that the Welshman doesn’t fit into the future of the club.
Deeney also spoke on how the high wages of the Real Madrid man could be a stumbling block in terms of agreeing to stay another year in North London.
He said (TalkSPORT): “I think he will go back.
“I think for the amount of money that they have been spending on wages.
“And again, when you look at it, then it’s all about youthful, high-energy players, with low risk to injury and being able to sell them on. I don’t think he fits into that category.”
Clarity will start to emerge once a new manager is appointed by the club for next season.
Despite this, other news outlets have claimed that Tottenham would be more than happy to have the Welshman stay for another year. It has been reported that Daniel Levy will leave the decision of re-signing Bale on loan up to the new manager (Daily Mail).
Spurs Web Opinion:
It has been baffling to see the brilliance of Bale frozen out of the side this season. The Welshman has delivered whenever he has been called upon, especially against lesser opposition. If a deal can be agreed that doesn’t affect other areas, having Bale again should be a no-brainer.
