Bale has been a revelation for Tottenham in the past few months and his club’s failure to secure a place in next season’s Champions League has led to speculation that the winger would leave the north London club.
However, despite potential offers on the table of £50million for Bale, Spurs coach Tim Sherwood isn’t expecting the player to leave this summer and anticipates him starting the new campaign at the Lane.
He told the Daily Star Sunday: “Gareth’s fantastically happy at Tottenham.
“I see him around the training ground every day. He’s got a good relationship with the manager and loves his team-mates. They show him the respect that he deserves and he gives it back to them.
“I don’t see him banging the door down trying to get a move. I believe one million per cent he will stay.
“There will be a lot of clubs wanting to take Gareth but he’s 23 and has good advisors.
“There’s a time for him to go overseas or to another Premier League club but I think he needs to stay here.”
