Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett has recently updated the press about the situation at Tottenham and the possiblities of him joining Spurs this season.
Jonathan Barnett, revealed that his client’s move to Tottenham from Real Madrid is “close but not done”.
Bale’s advisors are in a negotiation with Spurs on a potential loan away from Real Madrid.
The Welshman had earlier stated his interest to reunite with his former club, Tottenham, where he spent six seasons between 2007 and 2013, before joining Real Madrid.
Barnett told AFP: “It’s close but not done. It’s a complicated deal.”
Gareth Bale’s representatives are also in talks with other Premier League clubs, but Real Madrid have not agreed a deal with anyone.
Manchester United may have to join the league of teams in Gareth Bale’s pursuit, should they be unsuccessful in signing Jadon Sancho, and the likelihood of the 31-year-old returning to play in England is now looking much more realistic.
While speaking with Sky Sports News earlier this month, Gareth Bale said he would consider a move to the Premier League if Real Madrid let him leave and is open to joining United on loan or in a permanent move.
Tottenham are also in talks with Real Madrid over a deal to sign left-back Sergio Reguilon, while Eintracht Frankfurt striker Bas Dost is among a number of options the club are looking into to improve their attack.
Jose Mourinho said before the season opener against Everton, which Spurs lost 1-0, that he “needs a striker”.
Mourinho has spent in the region of £30m on the signings of free agent goalkeeper Joe Hart, right-back Matt Doherty from Wolves and midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton this summer, but so far back up for Kane has proved elusive.
