Tottenham Hotspur: Roy Keane discusses Gareth Bale signing

Tottenham Hotspur: Roy Keane discusses Gareth Bale signing - Premier League

Speaking recently to Sky Sports, Roy Keane questioned whether Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, overruled Jose Mourinho in the signing of Gareth Bale.

In his comments, as cited by Football.London, the former Manchester United midfielder stated: ‘I start to worry if Mourinho really wanted’ to sign Bale, due to the winger’s lack of game time so far at Spurs, before going on to suggest that perhaps ‘it was the chairman that brought him in’, because spending a reported £240,000 per week on the 31-year-old only to not play him is ‘bizarre‘.

Indeed, Bale has only featured 12 times since returning to Spurs on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid back in September, scoring three goals along the way.

Do you think Mourinho wanted Bale?

Transfer Tavern Take

With Spanish publication AS reporting that Bale would like to return to Madrid at the end of the season, contrasting earlier reports that the £18 million-rated winger could stay on longer in north London, as well as Mourinho recently being caught on camera asking the Welshman whether he wanted to stay at Spurs or “go to Real Madrid and play no football”, it would appear that there could be some truth behind Keane’s recent comments.

However, regardless of whether or not Levy did indeed insist on the signing of Bale, it is certain that Tottenham would like to be getting value for their money spent on bringing the winger back to the club.
