Some Spurs fans are refusing to believe that there is any truth in reports coming out of Spain claiming that Gareth Bale wants to return to Real Madrid next season and see out the final year of his contract in the Spanish capital.
Spanish publication AS have suggested that the Welshman wants a swansong at the club where he won four Champions League titles and is prepared to return to Madrid at the end of his season-long loan deal at Spurs.
Reports have previously suggested that Tottenham have the option of extending Bale’s loan spell by another year (Football.London).
However, the Welshman has not exactly hit the ground running in North London, having made only one Premier League start since his return.
While some Spurs fans saw it as an obvious fact that Bale would return to Madrid at the end of his loan spell, others saw the report as a made-up story aimed at tarnishing the 31-year-old.
I'm really surprised how many people still believe what 'AS' write about Bale!

Spurs Web Opinion
Whether Tottenham do actually end up extending Bale’s stay or not, what is clear is that the Spanish press still have not got over their obsession with the Welshman. Even after he has left Madrid, the 31-year-old continues to make headlines every single time he is left on the bench or out of the squad by Jose Mourinho. Given how they maliciously targeted Bale with fake reports during his time in Spain, there is no reason to believe there is any truth in these reports.
