The £18.5m-rated star has only made 12 appearances for Spurs in the Premier League this season but has scored five goals in those games and four of those have come in his last four appearances (via Transfermarkt).
Discussing his future at the Lilywhites, Gold had this to say on the Welshman and his performances so far this season.
He said: “For me, there’s two different Gareth Bales. The Gareth Bale in the month or so before the north London derby was absolutely worth it. I would so, so pay the money for him to come back to the club for another season because that player is a game-changer and can absolutely smash it.
“If you get the flat Gareth Bale before it and the Gareth Bale we got in the north London derby, then no, that money should go towards another player. There’s part of me that would love to see Gareth Bale in that top form playing in front of the fans.”
Do you want Tottenham to sign Bale?
No, not after what he said
Yes, he would be brilliant
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
Certainly, the Bale we have seen over recent weeks is one Spurs fans will want to see back in the Premier League next season. If Levy agrees with Gold’s comments, it would be interesting to see how Spurs deal with Bale’s wages if the deal was a permanent one. Bale is reportedly earning around £600k-per-week at Madrid and Spurs would not be capable of paying such wages with their permanent top-earner, Harry Kane, on £200k-per-week.
The remaining nine games of the Premier League season could be vital for Bale if he wants to earn a move back to Spurs for next season. The Lilywhites are only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with Mourinho’s side aiming to earn themselves a place in Europe for next season.
There is a lot to play for in the remaining games for Spurs and potentially Bale and his future.
