Real Madrid certainly aren’t giving up on Gareth Bale, despite recent reports that the winger is set to sign a new deal at Spurs. Marca newspaper, which is more or less a Madrid fanzine at times, has been waging something of a war of attrition over the Bale transfer this past week.
After claiming a deal had been done for the Spurs winger, the paper then changed tact and quoted him- from a source probably sat in a Spanish bar somewhere- as saying he was upset with Tottenham for not letting him leave. The latest effort from Marca is to cast doubts over Bale’s injury during the club’s pre-season tour in Hong Kong, claiming there may be something more sinister afoot that no doubt leads to a transfer to the Spanish capital.
Where does all this leave United? Well, I’m gonna stick my neck out and say I seriously don’t see Bale coming to United this Summer, although I’m not so sure he’ll go to Madrid either, he may well give it at least one more season in North London, which means we can look forward to all this nonsense next Summer.
