Tottenham: Alasdair Gold makes Gareth Bale claim

Tottenham: Alasdair Gold makes Gareth Bale claim -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold has made a claim over the possibility of Gareth Bale returning to north London in the summer.

The Lowdown: Pre-contract reports

Bale spent last season on loan at Spurs, scoring 16 goals in 34 appearances. He returned to Real Madrid over the summer, where he has once again been surplus to requirements, despite Carlo Ancelotti taking over at the Bernabeu.

The 32-year-old has played just 270 minutes of La Liga action this season, with reports last month claiming Tottenham have already reached a pre-contract agreement with Bale when he becomes a free agent in July.

The Latest: Gold’s comments

Gold ran a Q&A on football.london on Thursday lunchtime and was asked by one Spurs supporter about the possibility of Bale making a return under Antonio Conte next season.

This is what he had to say, admitting he was ‘intrigued’ over Bale’s next move.

Can you tell us where all these ex-Spurs stars are from? Federico Fazio...

“As much as I’d like to see Gareth Bale have a last hurrah in front of full crowds at Spurs I just can’t see how he fits Conte’s team with the workrate and pressing required for an older player with his injury nightmares of recent seasons.

“I’m as intrigued as anyone to see what the Welshman does next.”

The Verdict: Look elsewhere?

Bale once again showcased his world-class talent for Wales on Thursday, scoring twice to help his country take a step closer to the World Cup later this year.

However, going off his injury issues in recent years, along with Conte’s physical demands, it could be a wise move to avoid a reunion with Bale.

He may not be able to cope with the Italian’s methods and would be on a big wage, so going after a younger more central attacker to rival Harry Kane looks to be the smarter option.
