‘Tottenham have a good squad, and with his help they will get very close’: Gareth Bale’s agent tips Spurs to battle for the Premier League as he claims Welshman is still one of the best players in world football
- Gareth Bale rejoined Tottenham on a sensational loan deal from Real Madrid
- The Welshman agreed a deal to go back to Spurs for around £13million-a-year
- His agent, Jonathan Barnett, believes Bale can make a huge difference for Spurs
- Bale has yet to feature for Tottenham since rejoining due to a knee injury
Bale has yet to feature for Spurs second time round as he continues to step up his return to fitness following a knee injury, but Jonathan Barnett believes Jose Mourinho’s side will be a different animal when he finally steps back onto the pitch.

When asked about Bale’s ambitions during his second stint at Tottenham, Barnett told Sky Sports: ‘Win the Premier League, without a doubt.
‘Tottenham have got a good squad, a great coach and with Gareth’s help I’m sure they will get very close. You only have to see the results from last week to see that it’s open.
‘It kills me to say that because I’m an Arsenal supporter, but that’s the reality.
‘He has nothing to prove to anybody. He’s won more than anybody else. He was one of the best three or four players in the world and I think he still is.

‘If he succeeds, great, If not, he’s been there and done it. But, I think he will succeed.’
Bale has been given a chance to get his career back on track after falling massively out of favour under Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
The Welshman claimed four Champions League trophies, and two La Liga titles during his time in the Spanish capital, but only played a bit-part role last season as Madrid secured domestic glory after failing to secure a move away last summer.
But now he will be desperate to reignite his career under Mourinho at Spurs after watching on from the sidelines at Madrid.
