Fabrizio Romano delivers update on Tottenham loanee Gareth Bale, rules out one option

Fabrizio Romano has ruled out rumours that Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale could announce his retirement after Euro 2020. The Real Madrid superstar knows of his decision, but is unwilling to share that until after Euro 2020.

Bale, 31, has reminded Tottenham and Real Madrid fans that he is capable of utter magic this season. But Spurs fans will argue it was all too inconsistent. More recently, under Ryan Mason, Bale did score six goals in six Premier League matches for Spurs.

Reports claim Bale has a clause that allows Tottenham to extend his loan by another season – until his Madrid contract expires. But speaking after his brace in a 4-2 win over Leicester, Bale stated he has made a decision. For now, that decision will remain a secret.

He did state the decision would cause chaos – leading to reports from Spain suggesting he could retire, prompting a mixed response from Spurs fans. Now, Romano has dismissed those claims but his ultimate decision – Madrid for another season, another Spurs loan or elsewhere, is still unknown.

Bale still has plenty to offer at Tottenham, after Romano claim

The matter of the fact is, that despite struggling for much of the season, Bale has still scored 16 goals. That is a decent return for a player that only started 19 of his 34 appearances – and completed 90 minutes on just one occasion. He is capable of magic, and others can learn from him.

Spurs have got to fight tooth and nail to keep Bale, especially with Harry Kane potentially departing. It gives Spurs fans hope when Bale is named on the team sheet and with their boyhood icon on the way out, keeping Bale is even more important.
