Spurs ditch Gareth Bale from Twitter
Tottenham have scrapped Gareth Bale from the background of their official Twitter account.
The Welshman and Clint Dempsey once stood either side of their tweets. But they have now been swapped in favour of Mousa Dembele and Aaron Lennon.
Dempsey’s removal was inevitable after his departure to Seattle Sounders last week. The decision to remove Bale’s image at the same time is probably a clear indication of the direction of travel of the Bale-to-Real rumours.
Certainly the decision has been seized upon by the Spanish media as a clear indication that a deal is near.
AS claims the new background indicated that “Bale is one step closer to Real Madrid”.
