‘We’re working on his transfer’: Manager confirms Tottenham target is very close to exit

Tottenham Hotspur are enjoying a relatively successful summer of business in the transfer window thus far, after securing deals for two quality players.

While Jack Clarke will head back to Leeds on loan, Tanguy Ndombele will walk straight into Mauricio Pochettino’s squad for the upcoming season.

But prior to the addition of the duo, Gareth Bale was one of the players who were frequently linked with a move to north London this summer.

The 30-year-old was even claimed at one point to have been offered a return to north London (The Sun), but his comeback is yet to happen.

Nonetheless, it is becoming increasingly clear that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane does not want Bale at the club next season, after the Frenchman’s latest comments about the future of the former Spurs talisman.

“We hope he leaves soon. It would be best for everyone. We are working on his transfer to a new team.” Zidane said, as per BBC

“I have nothing personal against him, but there comes a time where things are done because they must be done.”

Bale was sold to Madrid in the summer of 2013, after finishing his final season as a Tottenham player as the top scorer in the squad that year.
