The agent of Gareth Bale has said a trip to the moon is more likely than the former Tottenham star joining Arsenal.
Bale spent six seasons at Spurs before joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 for a then-record fee of £85 million.
After winning his fourth Champions League title in the space of five years with Madrid in 2017/18, the Welshman has been linked with a move back to England.
Manchester United is thought to be his most likely destination, but a surprise return to Tottenham has also been mooted.
The arrival of new manager Julen Lopetegui could see Bale given a fresh start at the Bernabeu, but his English suitors will still fancy their chances of luring him until they hear otherwise.
And Bale’s agent, Arsenal supporter Jonathan Barnett, has been discussing his client’s future.
“He loves his life in Spain,” Barnett told Sky Sports (via the Express). “He has three children, and he’s very happy there. But we have to see.
“He has to play football. (As an Arsenal fan) I’d love him to play there but it’s got as much chance as me going to the moon.”
It’s safe to say Spurs fans will be delighted to hear those words, but many of them will be dreaming of an unlikely reunion with Bale this summer.
By the sounds of it, however, there is a good chance he will be staying in the Spanish capital.
“I think we have to have a chat with Real Madrid and see where we’re going,” added Barnett.
