Speculation over Gareth Bale’s future has dominated the headlines for the past couple of weeks after the Welshman admitted in an interview to Sky Sports that he could not rule out a move to the Premier League.
However, there have been contrasting reports emerging from Spain about the 31-year-old’s likelihood of leaving Real Madrid this transfer window.
There have been some suggestions that the Spanish giants would be willing to loan him out and cover half his wages (The Telegraph).
However, other reports have claimed that the former Tottenham star is unlikely to leave the Santiago Bernabeau unless the remainder of his contract is paid off by the club (Daily Mail).
Some Spurs fans are understandably excited about the prospect of Bale returning, however unlikely, and it appears some have even tried to order a Tottenham shirt from the online club shop with the Welshman’s name on the back.
However, to fans’ disappointment, Alasdair Gold has taken to social media to reveal that they would not be able to do so as Bale has trademarked his name.
For everyone asking me why you can't put Bale on the back of your Spurs shirt on the online club shop, the Welshman has apparently trademarked his name which is why it can't be used and sold in that way.
