Harry Redknapp says he is “absolutely sure” Gareth Bale will stay at Tottenham Hotspur amid reported interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Wales international has scored nine goals in his last 11 games for club and country, helping Spurs move into third in the English top flight and secure a 3-0 win against Inter Milan in their Europa League last-16 first-leg tie.

Bale’s form has resulted in the 23-year-old being linked with La Liga’s two biggest clubs, while Manchester United has also been touted as another possible destination for the winger.

But Redknapp, who worked with Bale for three-and-a-half years at White Hart Lane, believes the Southampton youth graduate would be wise to stay at Spurs.

“I’m absolutely sure Spurs are the best club for him and that he will stay,” said Redknapp

“He loves life at Spurs and with the club looking at another Champions League campaign next term why would he leave? I don’t think that will happen.

“The boy is a dream to manage and he has been fantastic this season. He’s almost unplayable when he’s on his game.”
