Ryan Mason addresses the future of on-loan Tottenham ace Gareth Bale

According to Eurosport, interim Tottenham Hotspur manager Ryan Mason has responded to the talks of the future of on-loan superstar Gareth Bale.

Bale arrived at Tottenham last summer, on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid. Having returned to the club seven years after leaving for Spain, the 31-year-old Welsh wing-wizard had a difficult start due to injuries and fitness woes.

However, in the second half of the campaign, Bale started to show signs of his quality. Nevertheless, he wasn’t used regularly by former manager Jose Mourinho. That has seemingly changed since Mason’s appointment as Bale has started both the league games under the 29-year-old interim boss and starred in each.

Indeed, after a match-winning display against Southampton, Bale was in tantalizing form for Tottenham as we thrashed Sheffield United 4-0 this past Sunday. The 31-year-old led the way in the rout with a stunning hat-trick, showing that if used the right way, in a right system, he still has oodles left to offer at the highest level.

Bale’s loan deal, however, expires at the end of the ongoing season, when he will return to Real Madrid. During his post-match interview, Mason was asked if there was a scope for Tottenham extending Bale’s spell beyond the current campaign, to which he said a decision will be made once the season is over.

“I think that is a discussion once the season is done. Our priority is the next game.”
Mason also went on to hail the performance of the Welshman, insisting that he has not lost his quality at all.

“I said all along Gareth Bale hasn’t and won’t lose that ability in the final third to produce moments of excellence. He’s a world class player – he’s proved that over many years. The most pleasing thing about him tonight was his attitude, his running for the team.”

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

With his hat-trick on Sunday, Bale has taken his tally for the season to 14 goals and  3 assists from 30 games in all competitions for Tottenham. The Welshman has scored a goal every 105 minutes this term, showing that he still hasn’t lost his quality in the final third. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Whether that is enough for the club to extend his stay for another season, remains to be seen.
