Another year and another Gareth Bale back to Spurs rumour mill; Tottenham fans will be more than used to these kinds of stories in the transfer window.
The Welsh Wizard himself gave an interview to Sky Sports about his future this week, revealing that he did try to leave Real Madrid last summer, but the club were ‘difficult’.
Bale also refused to rule out a return to the Premier League, insisting that he would look at any proposal, but he was adamant that his future was in the hands of Real Madrid.
Gareth Bale made 203 appearances and scored 55 goals for Spurs before joining Real Madrid and winning four Champions League trophies (Wikipedia).
However, the 31-year-old has fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu in recent years and Fabrizio Romano has admitted that the Welshman could come back to Tottenham in the future, while pointing out that a move this summer would be tricky.
Romano told the Last Word On Spurs podcast (26 minutes): “Sure Tottenham would love to have Gareth Bale back but it’s not just about the fans, it’s also about the board. Jose Mourinho would love to work with Gareth Bale but the main problem, and I think it’s so difficult to see Gareth Bale back, is that in this moment his situation with Real Madrid is almost like a war.
“For many years, what is happening in my personal opinion is crazy because we are talking about a fantastic player who doesn’t seem interested in playing football for Real Madrid but, at the same time, he wants to stay with the club.
“So what Jonathan Barnett (Bale’s agent) said about the situation of the player is that he wants to stay, he has no intention of leaving the club; it’s like a war. When you are in this type of situation, with a war between the club, the agent, the player, it is so difficult in this kind of summer.”
However, he added: “I think, one day, Gareth Bale can come back to Tottenham and I hope because it is perfect for Tottenham. In this moment, I see a top player in a club who doesn’t want him anymore, and the situation with Zidane is complicated. It’s a pity, but I think that Gareth Bale will stay at Real Madrid again.”
