Boss Jose Mourinho has been a fan of the Welshman in the past, although the pair’s relationship began to strain when they were together at Tottenham Hotspur.

“I just think they don’t see football the same way – I’m very diplomatic here,” agent Jonathan Barnett said when discussing Bale’s second spell in north London.

“Let’s just say it wasn’t the best comeback at a club in history.”

It remains to be seen whether a reunion could still be on the cards, with Bale himself recently admitting he is unlikely to make a decision on his future until he returns from vacation following the current international break.

A move to Getafe has been ruled out but speculation linking Bale with a move to local club Cardiff City continues to persist.

Group of clubs chasing the Vaulks

Sheffield Wednesday are among a number of clubs chasing former Cardiff City midfielder Will Vaulks.

According The starWednesday faces competition from Huddersfield Town, Stoke City, Queens Park Rangers and Luton Town for the midfielder, whose departure from the capital was confirmed towards the end of last week.

Vaulks is no stranger to South Yorkshire having spent time in Rotherham shortly before his move to the Bluebirds, and a return to the region could well be of interest this summer.

Wilson issues warning to England

Former Cardiff City loanee Harry Wilson has issued a warning to England ahead of the World Cup this winter.

Wales will face their rivals in their final Group B fixture in Qatar, with the United States and Iran also on the prowl.

The clash against the Three Lions will be the first competitive meeting between the two teams since Wales were beaten 2-1 at Euro 2016, and Wilson, who has since joined Premier League new boys Fulham, insists on the fact that his team cannot be underestimated.

“Wales versus England is a massive game no matter where they are,” he said. “But since it’s the World Cup, the biggest step, it will be a bit more.

“We’re going to go there full of confidence and there’s no reason why we can’t get a result against England. We’d be lying if we said we didn’t watch the games. We have friends in the England team. I also have a couple in the American team of Fulham.

“We’ll have a few jokes about them, but once those games happen, we’ll be against each other for 90 minutes. I will do everything I can for Wales and they will do everything possible for their country. »

The Truth About O’Dowda

Cardiff City have secured their fifth signing of the summer on the line.

Callum O’Dowda has signed a three-year contract with the Bluebirds after six years with Bristol City. On a free transfer, it could prove to be smart business from boss Steve Morison, who has already added Ebou Adams, Jak Alnwick, Ollie Tanner and Jamilu Collins to his ranks this off-season.

It’s fast work from the capital club, and with more signings expected, it’s encouraging to see Cardiff line up early ahead of the new season.

So what about O’Dowda? What can we expect from the 27-year-old? We spoke to Gregor MacGregor , a Southwestern freelance journalist who covered O’Dowda’s progress with the Robins. Here is the truth.
