Real Madrid had a sigh of relief last summer when they were successful in loaning out Gareth Bale at Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs agreed to bring him back on temporary terms, however, the Wales wizard has now cast doubts over his Premier League future beyond this campaign.
“My plan is to go back, that’s as far I have planned. I think the main reason I came to Spurs this year was to play football first and foremost. Going into the Euros I wanted to be match-fit. The original plan was to do a season at Spurs and after the Euros still have a year left at Real Madrid.”
Revealed the 31-year-old (as quoted by Sky Sports) who has not been in Zinedine Zidane’s plan since the Frenchman got re-appointed as the Blancos chief.
Although the Madrid hotshots are desperate to offload the attacker permanently, his hefty £600,000 a week wages and £150m over its contract duration – in salaries and bonuses could not be matched by the suitors. Bale, too, is happy to spend his contract playing golf in case he does not find a place at Bernabéu next season.
The Wales international had a slow start to life at Tottenham upon his return but grabbed a regular status of late thanks to a great scoring run from the flanks. He, so far, has found the net 10 times in 25 outings across competitions and should uplift the tempo for the final showdown of an intriguing ‘top four’ battle.
Why Real Madrid Must Get Rid Of Bale This Summer
Los Blancos, meanwhile, would be in trouble to accommodate his full salary considering the financial instability in the wake of the pandemic. They need to reduce their wage bill first and the ongoing Gareth Bale conundrum is proving to be a stumbling block over potential high-profile moves for the likes of Harry Kane, Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland.
Eden Hazard is having a torrid spell since leaving Chelsea for his ‘dream‘ club, whereas the Madrid giants must find a long-term successor of 33-year-old Karim Benzema to lead the line for years to come. They, therefore, require significant reinforcements to rule world football and the failure to finding able alternatives for their ageing stars remain a concern irrespective of major honours achieved in recent years.
Spurs have ample attacking options in their ranks and the egress of Bale won’t be much of a difference as long as Kane and Heung-min Son are there in North London. It is to be seen now whether the Whites find a solution and overcome the crisis in due time.
