Things have turned a little sour for former Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale recently.

The Welsh wizard has found himself fall out of favour at Real Madrid and does not appear to be a part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans, which has led to speculation that he could be offloaded in the summer on loan.

However, his agent, Jonathan Barnett, has revealed to Sky Sports that it will not be on a loan deal as many have previously touted in the past.

“A loan move is not going to happen,” he said. “I don’t think he wants to go out on loan. He’s got a lovely life and home in Spain. I think it would take something exceptional for him to leave and loans are not on the menu.”

Bale’s career definitely looks to be in limbo at the moment as he is reportedly earning wages of £600,000 a week before tax (Guardian) and it would be incredibly difficult to see anyone willing to stump up anywhere near those figures for the 29-year-old.

The fact that he has not played much football recently will not have helped his cause, as he made just 29 appearances in La Liga and scored eight goals (Transfermarkt), whilst his alleged attitude to the amount of money he is earning will not have earned him too much respect.

It has been claimed Bale is happy to ‘stay and play golf’ if the club do not pay up his current contract – worth a cool €17million (£15.1m) a year (Sport).

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to Barnett’s latest comments regarding his client and it would be safe to say they were rather unforgiving towards their former star.

Here are just some of their reactions…
