New Spurs manager will get the chance to keep Bale
By Bruce Grove -

Gareth Bale could be a Tottenham player next season if the club’s next manager wants him.

The Welshman has spent this season on loan with the Lilywhites and he looks set to return to Real Madrid at the end of the campaign.

However, Mail Sports claims that Spurs secured an agreement that gives them the first option to sign him on loan for another season.

Bale didn’t enjoy his time under Jose Mourinho, but he is now flourishing under the management of Ryan Mason.

He scored a hat-trick against Sheffield United at the weekend to become Spurs’ third-highest goalscorer for the season.

He now has 14 goals for the club in this campaign and has been having a lot of fun in recent games.

The report says Daniel Levy will give the club’s next manager the chance to keep the attacker if he wants.

Bale’s start to life at Spurs this season wasn’t the best, but if he keeps his current form until next season, he could help them challenge for silverware as well as a top-four finish..

They still maintain a slim hope of making the top four this season and fans will hope he fires them into that Champions League place.

But would Ryan ‘Sherwood’ Mason snap up the extension?

I know it is all over now but I still cant work out why Levy paid him so much. I thought he was the ultimate negotiator. What a waste of ******* money that little project was.

Mourinho wasted Bale, I think he was jealous that there was somebody else in the camp as big a celebrity as him! Keep him, he’s a potential matchwinner in every game.

You know given that we’ve put up with an out of sorts Bale for so long, and given that I have zero expectation of CL footy or any trophy next season, and given that I have zero expectation of going to White Hart Lav or of purchasing any Spud related goods for the foreseeable future and therefore it’s not in any way my money; I’d be happy to see what another season of Gareth looks like, especially if Kane leaves. In fact for the same reasons I’d be happy to see how Scott ‘The Boy Wonder’ Parker’s Tottenham would shape up.

I can’t help but wonder what Bale we’d have seen if Jose could have swallowed some pride and given a warm shoulder, just a little! Not every person has the mentality to be a warrior just by being beasted

Alternatively, you could take a view that when he arrived in London, he was behaving the same way he was behaving when he was in Madrid.

Maybe Bale should just disappear from whence he came, and we can all move on with our lives as opposed to using nonsense to attack the

reputations of Zidane and Mourinho?

Not relevant to this article, but I just saw on Sky Italia that Spurs will have to pay a part of Mou`s salary in Rome? Whats that about?

According to the report:
“Mourinho signed his Roma contract on Monday and accepted a pay cut.
The Portuguese coach will earn €7m-a-year, way less than his €16m-a-year contract in North London.
However, Mourinho will earn the same money in his first season in the Capital as Spurs have agreed to pay part of his salary in his first campaign at the Stadio Olimpico”.

Cheers. Was led to believe that Levy had to pay €9m to a manager working for another club. These are crazy times, but luckily not that insane.

I cant see any manager letting Levy off that lightly….or taking a 9m pay cut…

I’m not sure it’s got anything to do with anyone letting anyone else off, it’s obviously contract terms. Simple as that.

I have a vague recollection of reading of some agreement that Spurs would pay any difference in Mourinho’s new wage from the wage he’d agreed with Spurs for next season if he took a job. It’s still a win for Levy as he’s saved €7m of what he was on the hook for. Even when he loses that smarmy little git Levy still saves a few quid.

If he goes missing against Leicester then no thanks.. I would like to see him turn it on against a good team for at least one match.. Nice goals but all against sub par opponents all season.
