Gareth Bale declared he wouldn’t talk about his plans for next season until after the European Championships, but Tottenham appear to have dropped a major hint over their plans for the Welshman, writes the Mirror.
Tottenham’s new kit was revealed on Monday morning and was listed for sale shortly after.
And Spurs fans were quick to note that the club has been selling shirts with Bale’s name and number on the back.
The winger finished off an impressive loan spell by scoring his 10th and 11th Premier League goals of the season against Leicester City.
Bale seemed to be enjoying his time back in England after seven years in Spain with Real Madrid.
But just hours after the final whistle at the King Power Stadium, Bale flew back to Madrid and landed in the Spanish capital on Sunday night.
The winger said after the game on Sunday: “I’ll wait until after the Euros. It would just cause chaos if I say it.”
When pressed on his future, he added: “I’m not thinking about anything – all I’m concerned about now is finishing this season off strong, and we meet up straight after for the Euros.
“All I’m thinking about at the moment is Wales.”
Bale has a year to run on his contract at Madrid, but is unlikely to have much of a future in Spain.
The winger fell out with Zinedine Zidane during his final season at the club, and was restricted to just 12 starts in La Liga.
Madrid are believed to be eager to sell him permanently, and it’s been claimed that Bale would be happy to stay.
Tottenham posted a tweet of Bale celebrating his second against Leicester saying: “He was born to play for Spurs”.
And selling next year’s shirt with his name on the back will do little to quell Tottenham fans’ excitement at the possibility of him staying.
