Jonathan Barnett, Gareth Bale’s sports representative, admitted the Welshman was close to hanging up his boots.
Back in Premier League at summer transfer window, the Welsh center forward can not win at Spurs. Braked by injuries, Gareth Bale was entitled to 16 appearances, including 10 as holder. Asked about the situation of his player during the “Financial Times Business of Football Summit”, Jonathan Barnett gave an astonishing response. “He is nearing the end of his career. But really, we should ask Mourinho that, ”said the sports agent.
A return to Spain this summer?
Far from his best, Gareth Bale might not stay at Tottenham at the end of the current sports exercise. If the English decide not to extend the adventure of the 31-year-old for another season, the latter should return to Spain where he is still linked to the real Madrid until 2022. A bad one for the Welsh striker as well as for Zinedine Zidane who clearly does not count on him.
