Bale's Tottenham future dependent on Redknapp
Gareth Bale will wait and see if manager Harry Redknapp stays at Tottenham Hotspur before deciding whether or not to commit himself to the club, the Daily Mirror has reported. The newspaper adds that Manchester City and Barcelona are monitoring Bale’s situation.
The Mirror goes on to say that Redknapp is currently discussing a new contract with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Bale is, amongst others, watching intently for a positive conclusion. If Redknapp cannot agree terms on extending his deal past the final year on his current contract, Bale could be one of a number of players who looks to move on, with Luka Modric also named by the article.
Redknapp is reportedly the subject of interest from the Middle East, with an unnamed club in Qatar lining up the 65-year-old for a director of football position. The former Southampton and Portsmouth manager was said to have been tempted by a similar offer last year and the uncertainty over his own future and that of a number of his key players could tip him towards a new start, the Mirror suggests.
