Spurs hope Bale will commit future to the club this week.
Tottenham hope Gareth Bale will sign a new contract when he returns to training this week, reports the Daily Mirror.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas and the club’s new sporting director Franco Baldini will lead the attempt to persuade Bale to commit his future to the north London outfit for one more season.
If the Welsh forward agrees to extend his deal, he will become the highest earner in the club’s history on £170,000-a-week.
Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for the 23-year-old, who scored 21 league goals and was named treble player of the year in a stunning campaign for Spurs last season.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez and assistant manager Zinedine Zidance have both been vocal in their admiration of Bale but Villas-Boas says he has received assurances from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that the Wales international will not be sold.
Villas-Boas enjoys a strong relationship with Bale, whose current deal expires in summer 2016, and the Portuguese is hopeful of convincing the player to remain in north London, despite Spurs’ lack of Champions League football next term.
