Gareth Bale’s return to Tottenham is a story that may well not stop until the boy hits close on 40 years of age. It’s a fairy tale, it’s closure, it is so many things to so many football fans and football journalists, that it is a story that so difficult to decry.
Bale’s contract with the Spanish giants expires in 2020.
The Harry Hotspur blog understands from a source close to Tottenham that a line of dialogue with Gareth Bale was 100% opened this month.
If true, then these discussions would have only been via British super agent Jonathan Barnett, the man that brokered the legendary deal that took Spurs’ greatest Welshman since Cliff Jones, from Haringey to the Bernabeu.
That said, earlier this month, Mr Barnett was uncompromising in his view on Bale’s situation, telling ESPN, that his boy was not about to relocate, and that the 4 time Champions League winner was “going nowhere” in the January transfer window.
