The agent of Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale has rubbished reports claiming that his client is aiming to retire from football and become a full-time professional golfer.
The Welshman’s future is currently shrouded in uncertainty, as he has just over 12 months remaining on his Blancos deal after a solid loan spell back at Tottenham Hotspur.
Recent reports from Spain have made the audacious claim that Bale – renowned for his love of golf – could hang up his boots and move into the sport as professionally, but agent Jonathan Barnett has been quick to falsify such reports.
Speaking briefly to talkSPORT, the 71-year-old said: “Sorry, I don’t speak about rubbish reporting.”
Bale’s brace on the final day of the Premier League season against Leicester City helped the Lilywhites secure a place in the inaugural UEFA Conference League, and he ended the 2020-21 season with 16 goals and three assists across all competitions.
The former Southampton man has endured a fractious relationship with Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, although the Frenchman has reportedly left the club in recent hours.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
