TIF Thoughts on Bale’s future…

The Welshman had a strange loan spell at Tottenham this season. Under Jose Mourinho, Bale struggled for game time, however, when the winger was given the opportunity he certainly proved his worth (via Transfermarkt).

Bale ended the 2020/21 Premier League campaign with 11 goals and two assists in just 20 appearances for the north London club. To put that into perspective, Bale averaged a league goal every 84 minutes which is the best of any player.

We think Spurs should be doing everything they can to get Bale back for next season. The specifics of the deal will obviously be important, however, with just one year left on his deal at Madrid, reports suggest his future does not lie in Spain.
