Bale’s agent said on Wednesday morning that his client’s return to Tottenham Hotspur is close. The attacker is rented from Real Madrid for a year. According to Marca, the English club will pay Bale’s full salary, and Real will remain responsible for paying the bonuses.
Mourinho was confronted with the possible arrival of Bale at the press conference at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday. “Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player and I do not talk about players from other clubs. It is not my job to contact agents and I do not want to comment on this,” said Mourinho, who said something. “I was already trying to bring Gareth to Real Madrid during my time in Spain. The president followed my instinct and got Gareth after I left. That’s no secret, and Gareth knows it too.”
