Pochettino responds to Bale transfer talk
Mauricio Pochettino admits Gareth Bale’s situation at Real Madrid ‘isn’t easy’, but has refused to confirm any interest in signing him.
The Tottenham boss was asked about the likelihood of Bale returning to his former club during an interview with El Chiringuito TV and remained coy on any interest in the 29-year-old Wales international.
‘He’s a Real Madrid player,’ Pochettino said with a smile on his face when asked about a potential summer swoop.
‘But we have a good relationship.
We played against him last year.
I have good references about him.
‘Everyone has a fond memory of him here, just like they do at Southampton.
‘He still has three years on his contract at Madrid.
It’s a situation that isn’t easy for him and isn’t easy for the club.’
