The prodigiously-talented star was “spotted in Cuffley” yesterday (Saturday) afternoon, sparking speculation the attacker will be staying at Tottenham despite being linked with Spanish powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona and Premier League champions Manchester United.

Bale, 23, was thought to have in the village house hunting, near to Spurs’ Enfield training ground.

The sighting was mentioned on Twitter by Tottenham fan Chris D’Lima, who believes the Welsh international will be staying with the Lillywhites.

Mr D’Lima said his mum, who is also a “big fan” of Tottenham “swears on her life it was him”.

And he said as well as checking the village, home to The Ridgeway, a well-known ‘millionaires row’ haunt for Premier League stars, for a des-res, Bale may also have been in the market for a new set of wheels.

He said he was seen: “Walking past the station, possibly to the Land Rover showroom.”

Asked whether he thought the £85m-rated footballer would stay at Spurs model, actor and musician Mr D’Lima said: “I’m 100 per cent he is staying this season.

“I feel if we qualify for CL (Champions League) next season he’ll be happy to stay.”
