Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has given his verdict on whether the club are indeed poised to make a move for Gareth Bale or not.
The Welshman has endured a frustrating year at Real Madrid, after being troubled by injuries for yet another season.
Bale decided to leave Spurs in the summer of 2013 for what was a record-breaking transfer move to Real Madrid at the time.
After being frequently left out of the Madrid starting eleven last season, the attacker has dropped further down the pecking order at the Bernabeu.
There have been rumours of a possible return to north London for the former Southampton player, who scored twice in the 2018 Champions League final win over Liverpool.
When asked about whether Bale, who is valued at £112m (AS), would be pursued by Tottenham this summer, Pochettino revealed that outcome strictly depended on the club chairman’s decision.
The Spurs manager insists Daniel Levy would be the one responsible for any attempt to sign the 30-year-old ahead of next term.
“I saw in the media but I do not know which club is working to try to sign him. At the moment I do not have any information from my chairman. I don’t know if it is us or another club. It is not my job. It is the job of my chairman who is trying to build the best possible squad.” the boss said, as per Football London
