Gareth Bale has reportedly been contacted by a number of Premier League clubs after the former Tottenham winger confirmed his exit from Real Madrid, according to Fabrice Hawkins (via Madrid Xtra). 

The 32-year-old Wales star is set to depart the LaLiga side as a free agent after nine years this summer, citing his time with Real as an ‘incredible experience’ in a statement on social media. 

Despite his spell in Madrid being a turbulent one at points, Bale leaves trophy-laden with five Champions League crowns, three LaLiga titles and 106 goals in 258 appearances to his name (Transfermarkt). 

And with Bale now set to become a free agent at the end of the month, Canal+ journalist Hawkins reports that a host of Premier League sides have initiated contact with the Welshman ahead of the new season. 

Although no specific clubs are mentioned, it is added there is a ‘very high’ chance that Bale could make a move to the English top flight ahead of the new season with Wales still vying for a place at this year’s World Cup. 

Reports have hinted Bale could retire at the end of his Real career with qualification still hanging in the balance, but could look to sign a short-term deal with a club if the Dragons reach the finals (Evening Standard).

The forward spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at former club Spurs in his second stint in North London and had been linked with a potential third spell this summer (El Nacional).

Spurs Web Opinion 

Bale’s availability this summer will have plenty of clubs enquiring over his services and that looks to be starting already in the Premier League. 

We won’t know for sure if Spurs are one of the clubs in contact with Bale currently, but the likelihood is they will be in the conversation given the relationship with him from the past.
