Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been sharing his thoughts on Gareth Bale and what his future could hold.
This comes after Gold made an appearance on a recent live video from Football.london where he spoke about a range of topics concerning the Lilywhites.
On the subject of Bale, who spent the 2020/21 season on loan at the north London club from Spanish side Real Madrid, Gold had this to say about the Welshman’s future and where he could be playing next season.
He said: “From what I understand, the current feeling is that he’s likely to head back to Madrid.
“Obviously, the [Carlo] Ancelotti relationship helps as well, so technically, we’re probably talking about a guy that may not be at Tottenham next season.”
Bale originally left Spurs back in the 2013 summer transfer window for a mega-money move to Real Madrid, where he has since gone on to make 251 appearances and score 105 goals and provide 68 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
During his season on loan back at Tottenham, the 31-year-old, who is currently valued at £16.2 million, made 34 appearances across all competitions, racking up a total of 16 goals and three assists in the process.
TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Bale and his future…
With Bale’s current loan deal at Spurs expiring at the end of the month and the fact that the winger is currently at Euro 2020 with Wales, we feel that an official decision regarding Bale’s future will not be made anytime soon, despite Gold’s doubts over a potential return to Tottenham.
Do you think Spurs should try and sign Bale again this summer?
Also, with Real Madrid recently announcing the return of former manager Carlo Ancelotti, who Bale played under on 92 occasions, and has claimed that the Welshman could still have a future at the Spanish club, it seems that it will be down to Bale on what he decides to do after the Euros.
In our view, if Bale doesn’t want to continue playing for the La Liga side, then Spurs should definitely consider bringing him back to the club either on another loan deal or a permanent basis considering the decent impact he had in front of goal for them this season.
