Well some news is better than none, and this news is no exception, with Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett at least acknowledging that this whole Bale to Spurs sketch is at least a process in motion, opposed to some giant media hoax.
For the agent to tell the AFP news agency that an agreement is close, but not done, certainly reflects a willingness to get a deal done, if nothing else. Such is the nature of this particular situation, is that everyone knows the alternatives, which is for everything to remain as it is, or to then try and foist Bale onto another big side, which at this stage sounds like it might be an arduous task, to put it mildly.
