Tottenham's Gareth Bale decision hints at Antonio Conte's transfer plans

Tottenham apparently won’t be bringing Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale back to north London for a third spell this summer. And Spurs’ decision to snub their former goal machine has hinted that Antonio Conte is set to turn his attentions to younger players during the summer transfer window.

Spurs signed Bale for the first time back in 2007 after club chiefs shelled out an initial £5million plus add-ons to take the then 17-year-old to the capital from Southampton.

And the Wales international was a revelation for the team.

During his last two seasons at Spurs, Bale racked-up an incredible 31 goals and 23 assists in the Premier League.

His scintillating form attracted the attention of the biggest clubs in the world and he landed a mega-money move to Madrid in 2013.

Bale has gone on to win four Champions League trophies, four Club World Cups and two La Liga titles during his time in Spain and was once a star man for Los Blancos.

Conte signed Juventus duo Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur last month and will be desperate to add more quality in the summer.

Last month Spurs were linked with Juve strikers Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata, who are both younger than Bale.

And Conte is also apparently keen on the likes of 21-year-old Brighton right-back Tariq Lamptey, 23-year-old Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz and 25-year-old Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

So the Italian clearly has plans to bring in players who can cope with his intense style of play and have their best years ahead of them.

Conte took over as Spurs boss in November following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.

And the 52-year-old had an immediate impact as he steered his team to six wins and three draws in his first nine Premier League games at the helm.

But the wheels have fallen off in recent weeks and Tottenham have lost their last three top-flight matches.

Conte is desperate to secure Champions League football at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and will be hoping his team can turn their poor form around quickly.

But whether he achieves that or not, the manager is likely to fervently pursue a whole host of players in the summer who can help his side become a force in the Premier League.

Ruud van Nistelrooy makes next job decision as Man Utd plan coaching appointment

That decision failed to pay off, however, with the Red Devils sacking Moyes after just 10 months in charge.

After the current West Ham boss came Van Gaal, who arrived with big things expected due to his past success at the likes of Barcelona and Ajax.

Giggs was hoping to get the Red Devils job himself, which was why he stayed, but both ended up leaving nearly six years ago.

When Jose Mourinho took over, he opted to maintain his close relationship with Rui Faria – who had previously worked under him at clubs such as Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Fair departed in the summer of 2018, though, with Michael Carrick then given a place on Mourinho’s bench.

Carrick stayed to work under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Norwegian also regularly picking up the thoughts of Phelan and Kieran McKenna throughout his spell in the dugout.
