Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has poured cold water on suggestions that the Welshman might return to Tottenham this summer.
He spent last season on loan at the Tottenham Stadium from Real Madrid.
He scored some important goals for them last season even though he wasn’t always a favourite of Jose Mourinho.
The attacker would be useful to Tottenham’s next manager if the club manages to sign him yet again.
However, Barnett is certain it will not happen and says there is no agreement between Tottenham and the former Southampton man.
He insists that Bale would remain in Madrid to honour his contract with the Spanish side.
‘As I have said from the beginning, there is no option,’ said Barnett on Standard Sport.
‘Gareth has no agreements whatsoever. He is under contract to Real.’
Bale is likely confident that he would get the chance to play more games at Madrid now that Zidane has left and has been replaced with Carlo Ancelotti.
Tottenham has been linked with other players and they can sign an attacking star that would make a bigger impact than Bale did, but they have to be willing to splash the cash.
