Jose Mourinho refuses to comment as Gareth Bale linked to Tottenham return

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has refused to comment on the club’s attempts to re-sign Gareth Bale.

The PA news agency understands the Real Madrid winger’s representatives are working on a deal to take Bale back to Spurs.

But ahead of his side’s Europa League second-round qualifying clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Mourinho said: “Gareth Bale is a Real Madrid player and I don’t comment on players from other clubs.

“That is not my job to have contacts with agents. I don’t want to comment on that.”

The 31-year-old swapped the north London club for the Spanish capital in 2013, winning four Champions Leagues during a medal-laden stint at the Bernabeu.

But Bale has found himself marginalised under Zinedine Zidane and a return to Spurs could be on the cards.

The two parties were still in discussions to get the move done on Wednesday morning, PA understands.

It is a complicated deal that will inevitably encounter problems given Bale’s wages and contract length at the Bernabeu, but it is one that the Welshman is keen to make.
