Tottenham Bale plans confirm Real Madrid’s worst fears
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham have no plans to offer Gareth Bale a second season on loan at the club as he struggles to impress.

The Lilywhites secured the return of the Welshman on loan from Real Madrid in the last transfer window.

They needed him to use his experience to push the team on to the next level.

But he hasn’t shown the kind of form they expect from him, and his injury record in his short time in London hasn’t helped his cause.

The Times says that the former Southampton man wants more minutes of football, but overall he is happy to be at Tottenham.

However, he hasn’t given Tottenham enough reason to try to sign him permanently or to take him on loan again.

This latest development confirms Real Madrid’s worst fears since he started struggling in London.

AS reported earlier that Madrid had hoped that he would go on a fine run of form and that Spurs would have been impressed enough to keep him for another campaign.

But they have started accepting the fact that it will not happen and they will have to pay him around 40m euros in wages for the final season on his current deal.

Bale is one of the highest earners at Tottenham, and he simply has to perform better if he wants to stay.

Yup, Daniel bought his better half a fur coat that’s seen better days, but he still can’t find her knickers.

I suspect Mourinho didn’t want Bale in the first place; and would’ve preferred the money invested elsewhere. Not saying he’s willfully keeping Bale on the sidelines, but it was always going to be a big ask for him to come back to the toughest league in the world; and I feel sure Mourinho knew that; and just isn’t prepared to risk giving him the game time he needs to get anywhere near the required levels of fitness. I also think that Bale’s cameos have, sadly, proven Mourinho right. Bale was, without doubt, one of the greatest players ever to play for us; and I so wanted it to work out, but he’s just not up to the demands of the Prem anymore.

Your points make sense,because surely if Mourinho wanted him he would have played more.Sadly he is not the player he was and the PL is not for proving you still have it.
Does anybody know if the terms of the loan allow us to send him back this month?Apart from the cost of his contract for virtually no return,it makes no sense to continue.It’s like making the same mistake and expecting a different outcome each time.
I too have said I wanted him to do well,but unfortunately it has not worked out.I understand he loves the club,but is he using it for an easy ride,because he should be showing better fitness by now.

I think we can’t end the deal early.

God only knows what Bale is showing in training if he can’t even be risked against the mighty Fulham. Would it be possible to spend £250,000 a week on someone who could actually contribute.

One more thing I have mentioned before but Mourinho needs to take a good long, hard look at the fitness /medical regime at Spurs.

Lo Celso, N’Dombele and Bale all arrived with significant injuries fitness problems. Bale and Lo Celso are now more absent than present and almost two years in Tanguy still can’t last ninety minutes. Lamela is a case study in himself.

Having simply not worked out following an underwhelming experience we might as well terminate Bale’s loan deal now!

He’s hardly getting a decent chance. The second half disgrace against Fulham was a perfect chance to bring him on, but Mourinho left him on the bench

A triple substitution should have been made at HT – Alli, Bale & Moura!

Arguably all our players switched off and had a nap in the 2nd half!!!
