Due to Daniel Levy’s commitment to include the first-refusal clause in Gareth Bale’s loan to the club last summer, Tottenham could sign the forward permanently this summer.
Bale returned to Spurs on a season-long loan last summer, and after a slow start, the Welshman is beginning to reclaim the form that made him a fan favorite before his transfer to the Bernabeu in 2013.
Although Jose Mourinho has always admired Wales captain Gareth Bale, the Portuguese coach was dissatisfied with the condition in which Bale arrived in north London and did not see the Real Madrid forward as a viable starter in Premier League games.
Bale has now scored six goals in his last eight games since regaining his fitness, giving fans hope that the Welshman will remain at the club beyond this season.
Bale’s return elicited jubilation from fans, but due to Covid-19 protocols prohibiting spectators from attending matches, fans have yet to see the club legend in action again. If the vaccine rollout continues at its current pace, the Premier League hopes to be able to welcome fans back for at least one game this season before completely reopening next season. And according to Eurosport, Levy wants to keep Bale at the club so he can play in front of his home crowd once more.
According to Eurosport, it is Levy’s dream to keep Bale at Spurs so that he can play in front of fans once more, with the Spurs chairman determined for fans to see the Welshman up close.
Due to the Spurs’ first refusal, Madrid must notify the club if they reach an agreement for Bale with any other team. Given Bale’s exorbitant pay, however, there is unlikely to be a long queue for the forward, and he is likely to remain at Spurs. Bale’s contract will expire at the end of the season, and Madrid will try to get a fee for the Welshman, which means he’ll have to take a pay cut to join Spurs.
