Bale’s agent hoping for Spurs stay

Gareth Bale’s agent insists staying an extra year at Tottenham would be ‘no problem’.

The winger is contracted to Real Madrid until 2022, and he could extend his stay back at Spurs beyond this season.

“I’m sure that if things really worked out well, we’d have no problem,” said Jonathan Barnett.

“This is the club he wants to play at. I don’t see any problems if he wants another year.”

Barnett, speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, added: “Hopefully the subject [of returning to Real] won’t come up. He will be so successful at Tottenham he’ll want to stay and it will be a simple deal to do the rest.”
