Gareth Bale is back enjoying his football and can help get Tottenham “very close” to challenging for the Premier League title, according to the forward’s agent.
Bale has returned to Tottenham on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, after going through “a hard time” in the Spanish capital.
Speaking to Sky Sports last month, Bale said he was back at a club he “loves with all my heart” and his representative Jonathan Barnett insists, for Bale, the move “wasn’t about money”.
In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News, Barnett said:
“He loves it [at Tottenham]. The most important thing is he has got a smile back on his face and that he’s enjoying life.
“It had to be somewhere he wanted to go. For him, it wasn’t about money. If he was going to go somewhere it was going to be somewhere that he’d enjoy.
“He’s had offers and it wasn’t right for him. When Tottenham came knocking, it was right.
“He’s had a hard time and now he’s going to enjoy himself. He deserves to be happy. He’s been probably one of Britain’s best ambassadors.
“He wasn’t going anywhere with Real Madrid. We’d got to an impasse and some silly things were happening on both sides.”
