Tottenham were informed of Gareth Bale transfer stance before UEFA Euro 2020 – Report



Gareth Bale informed Tottenham about his transfer stance ‘weeks ago’

According to The Athletic (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur have been in the know about the transfer stance of Gareth Bale well before the UEFA Euro 2020 started.

Bale, who rose to stardom during his time at Tottenham, left for Real Madrid in 2013. However, having been frozen out by former manager Zinedine Zidane, the Welsh international returned to north London last summer on a season-long loan.

Bale did not have the smoothest of starts to life back at Tottenham with injuries and fitness issues bogging him down. However, the 31-year-old was able to show sparks of brilliance in the second half of the 2020/21 season, finishing with an impressive tally of 16 goals in all competitions.

This had led to speculations that Bale could return to Tottenham for another spell. However, it is now being claimed that the Welsh wing-wizard has no intentions of returning to the north London club for another stint on loan.

In fact, the veteran winger is said to have informed the club of his decision weeks in advance before the UEFA Euro 2020 started. (h/t Express)

Bale’s resolve is likely to be strengthened further considering that Zidane is no longer the manager of Real Madrid. Instead, Carlo Ancelotti has taken over the reins at the Spanish club. Under the Italian tactician, Bale enjoyed a lot of success in his first two years with the Merengues. (h/t Express)

Bale, given his experience and proven pedigree, would have been a handy player to have within the ranks. More so, as Tottenham get ready for another shake-up under a new, yet-to-be-named manager. But it seems like there will be no third coming for the Welshman in north London.
