Spurs play cool with Real Madrid in Bale talks

Tottenham are keeping their powder dry in terms of a new deal for loaned Real Madrid striker Gareth Bale.

The London Evening Standard says that after his struggle to make an impact in the first five months of the season, Bale has now returned to form, scoring six times and providing three assists in the last six games, giving hope he could stay at the Spurs beyond the end of his season-long-term loan.

The 31-year-old has no future at Real as Zinedine Zidane is in charge and the club want to avoid paying the final year of his contract – around £ 30million before tax.

Spurs contribute less than half of his reported weekly salary of £ 600,000 and the deal should not include the automatic option of an extra year, so they should renegotiate with Real and Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett , to keep it.

Barnett raised the possibility that Bale could stay longer, but the president Daniel Levy has not yet held discussions.
