Bale close to new Tottenham contract

Gareth Bale is close to signing a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur, the Guardian has reported, despite Spurs’ failure to qualify for the Champions League. However, the winger’s terms are said to include a clause that would allow Bale to speak with clubs offering £50m or more to Tottenham from the end of next season.

The newspaper adds that signing Bale to a contract worth £150,000 per week is a message from chairman Daniel Levy that Spurs can pay top dollar and are intent on keeping their best players, despite interest in Bale from Real Madrid. Levy is also said to be hopeful that Tottenham qualify for next season’s Champions League, thereby persuading Bale to remain at White Hart Lane past the end of next season.

Spurs picked up 72 points in their first season under Andre Villas-Boas, the most any side has obtained and not finished in the top four of the Premier League, with Arsenal beating Spurs to Champions League qualification by a single point.

Tottenham ended their campaign with a 1-0 win over Sunderland, clinched by Gareth Bale’s 31st goal of the season, with Bale also picking up a number of individual Player of the Year awards.
