Ever since the Champions League final ended and even before Harry Redknapp left the club, the media seems to have been of the opinion that while Luka Modric would be leaving White Hart Lane this summer, Gareth Bale was set to stay on for another season at the very least.
In addition, the rumours linking Gareth with a move away have been very sparse and a ‘source’ close to the player has now spoken in yesterday’s Sunday papers.
“Gareth believes Tottenham were unlucky not to get into the Champions League after finishing fourth and is happy to stay at the club for now,” the source said.
“The chairman obviously has plans that did not involve Harry Redknapp and Gareth wants to find out what those are.”
Bale isn’t the only one who would like to know but hopefully any new manager will see the Welshman as crucial to his plans for 2012-13.
