Tottenham: Conte makes transfer demand involving Gareth Bale -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has demanded the signing of Gareth Bale among six major names if he is to continue at the club, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Conte maps out summer plan…

Recent claims have suggested that both the 52-year-old and Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici have a summer transfer plan somewhat mapped out, with potential targets already on the radar (The Telegraph).

Bale, who spent the 2020/21 season on loan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, has been tipped to make another return to the Premier League, and Spurs aren’t ruled out of the race. With the 32-year-old set to leave Real Madrid on a Bosman deal, the Lilywhites – along with Cardiff City, Newcastle, Rangers and AC Milan – are among the clubs who could sign him, as per 90min.

His agent Jonathan Barnett even told Record (via Evening Standard) that England is the player’s most likely destination, although much will depend on Wales’ qualification fate for the World Cup later this year.

The Latest: Conte makes Bale demand…

According to Spanish sources, Conte ‘demands’ six major signings in order to ‘continue at Tottenham’, with the report naming Bale and five others.

The former Inter Milan manager’s idea is apparently to ‘reinforce all the lines’ as the Real Madrid outcast ‘could be’ one of the ‘new faces’ in north London this summer.

The Verdict: Pinch of salt?

We struggle to see where Bale would fit into Conte’s system, so we suggest to take this report with a pinch of salt.

The 32-year-old still possesses plenty of ability, with talkSPORT pundit Andy Goldstein calling him ‘world class’ just last year despite his age, not to mention that he has an impressive 183 club career goals.

However, it is highly debatable whether Bale could match Conte’s intense training methods given his fitness issues throughout his loan spell at Spurs in 2020/21.

Jose Mourinho even slammed a false depiction of the player’s rehabilitation on social media, with Bale’s potentially enormous wage demands also coming as an issue for Tottenham to secure a third spell at the club for the Welshman.
