Gareth Bale has endured a difficult season at Madrid, having been overlooked for several big games and even being jeered off by his own supporters (Sport Bible).
Speculation in the press seems to suggest that this is the 29-year-old’s final season at the Spanish capital, with the Welshman being linked with a move to Man Utd as well as a return to Spurs (Marca).
After Madrid’s most recent defeat against Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane told reporters that he is not sure if Bale is focused on Madrid (Jeorge Bird for MailOnline).
According to Marca, after the game, Bale opted against travelling on the team coach and instead went to an airport to board a plane while the rest of the players went back to the club’s training ground together.
So Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett, who has been quite vocal in his defence of Bale recently, was asked about the Welshman’s future, and he reportedly told The BBC, “Gareth is 100 per cent committed to Real Madrid. Nothing has changed.”
Spurs Web’s take
A return to Tottenham for Gareth Bale would certainly be special for a lot of Spurs fans ahead of the club’s first full season at the new stadium.
However, investing a huge amount on an injury prone player who will soon be 30, is not the kind of punt that Tottenham have been inclined to take in the transfer window under the stewardship of Daniel Levy.
According to Marca (via the Daily Mail), Madrid might be willing to loan out the Welshman this summer if they aren’t able to find a buyer at the right price. Spurs fans probably shouldn’t keep their fingers crossed hoping for their former superstar to return.
