Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti addresses Gareth Bale future amid Tottenham talk

Speaking at his unveiling (h/t Football.london), newly-appointed Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti addressed the future of Gareth Bale amid talks of a return to Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale, after having left Tottenham for Real Madrid in 2013, returned to the north London club last summer on a season-long loan. While he struggled initially, the 31-year-old ended the campaign on a strong note, finishing with a more than handy tally of 16 goals in all competitions.

With his loan deal running out, Bale’s future has been shrouded with uncertainty, especially considering that he had been completely out of favour at Real Madrid. Talks of another potential return to Tottenham have also been doing the rounds for a while now. (h/t Football.london)

However, with Zinedine Zidane now gone and replaced by Ancelotti, who worked with the Welshman at Madrid and tasted a lot of success, things could be set for a change. And the Italian hinted that he will give Bale a chance to resurrect his career at the Spanish capital club. (h/t Football.london)

“He is coming back, I know him very well, he will be motivated to play better and have a great season, no doubt. I have a lot of love still for Gareth [Bale], Isco, Marcelo… they will have motivation to show they can still play for Real Madrid.

“With this squad, without loan players like Bale, Odegaard and Ceballos, Madrid reached UCL semis and fought for La Liga. So we have the players to win trophies.”

So, it seems like Bale will be getting another opportunity at Real Madrid under Ancelotti, meaning another return to Tottenham may well be off the table for the next season.
