Welshman set to stay at White Hart Lane regardless of Spurs’ final league position.
Tottenham are confident Gareth Bale will commit his future to the club by signing a bumper new contract worth £170,000-a-week.
Bale is already under contact until 2016 but the 23-year-old is expected to add an additional year to his current deal and double his wages, regardless of whether Spurs qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Representatives of the former Southampton star will sit down with club officials early next month, but anticipate few problems, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Welshman has been linked with a summer move to Real Madrid, after an astonishing season in which he has bagged 25 goals in all competitions.
New Manchester United boss David Moyes is also said to be interested in a summer swoop for Bale, who was named triple Player of the Year recently after directly contributing to 19 goals in his last 17 outings for the north London outfit.
But Bale’s commitment will provide a massive boost for boss Andre Villas-Boas and chairman Daniel Levy, particularly with the club odds-on to miss out on a top four finish despite the prospect of finishing with their highest ever Premier League points total.
If Arsenal beat Newcastle at St James’ Park in Sunday’s season finale, Spurs will finish fifth regardless of their result against Sunderland at White Hart Lane.
If the Toon take points off Arsenal, a Spurs win will seal their qualification for UEFA’s elite club competition.
