Tottenham Hotspur Decide Against Extending Bale’s Loan

Tottenham Hotspur Decide Against Extending Bale’s Loan

Tottenham Hotspur have decided they won’t extend Gareth Bale’s second spell at Tottenham into a second season after a report claimed he had ‘not lived up to Jose Mourinho’s expectations’.

Bale has only featured in 11 of Spurs’ 23 matches in all competitions since arriving on loan from Real Madrid.

The winger has failed to convince Mourinho that he is worth a regular place in the side, with the Portuguese still having some concerns over his fitness levels.

Madrid had hoped that the 31-year-old could revive his career in north London. The idea was for him to turn his loan into a permanent switch. That way Real could trim £650,000-a-week off their wage bill.

The Laliga giants boss Zinedine Zidane wants to splash the cash in 2021, having not added to his squad last summer.

Outstanding forwards Erling Braut Haaland and Kylian Mbappe are both on Madrid’s radar, with the latter likely to cost around £200million.

However, those plans look in serious disarray amid reports in Spain on Saturday. As per Mundo Deportivo, they claim Mourinho and Spurs have already decided against extending the arrangement.

In the article, they state ‘Bale doesn’t triumph at Tottenham’. They write Mourinho has already decided not to keep a player who ‘goes from injury to injury’.

Furthermore, they write that Bale has ‘not lived up to expectations’ during his second stint at Spurs.

With no chance of making the loan permanent, or even extending into a second season, Bale looks now to be facing an uncertain future.

Mundo Deportivo concludes that with Spurs ‘willing to return’ the wide-man to Real, the Spanish giants will now explore new ways to offload him from their books.
