Jose Mourinho might have become the new Tottenham Hotspur manager, however, that will not deter Gareth Bale from joining Manchester United.
Real Madrid winger, who has seldom made appearances for his current club recently and has been at the centre of controversy after sporting ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid’ banner has appeared four times for Wales since his last appearance for Real on October 5.
Indeed, former Real striker Predrag Mijatovic spoke out against keen golfer Bale in a newspaper article, saying:
The first thing he thinks about is Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid.
Wales fans have turned the mantra ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid’ into a chant, with Bale himself admitting he found the song amusing.
With it now looking increasingly likely that the 30-year-old will quit the Bernabeu, the main options appear to be a return to Spurs or a new challenge at United.
Spanish newspaper AS reported on Thursday that Bale will come back to Tottenham as ‘a treat of Mourinho’, who ‘intends to make him return to London next summer’.
But on Friday, Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness) claimed that Mourinho’s arrival at Spurs actually ‘complicates’ Bale’s potential return to north London.
