Paulinho hopes Bale stays at Spurs

Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has admitted that he hopes Gareth Bale stays in north London.

The Wales international has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer, but the Brazilian playmaker wants his Spurs teammate to stay at White Hart Lane.

“I hope Bale stays with us,” he told Fox Sports Brazil. “Gareth is a private man so he hasn’t said much.

“He is a great player who has achieved some great things, so I hope he can stay with us and help.”
