Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason said Gareth Bale’s future will be sorted at the end of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign after the Welshman hit the net three times against Sheffield United.


Bale scored a hat-trick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Lilywhites smashed the Blades 4-0, with Son Heung-min wrapping up the win with the fourth.


The win puts Spurs well in the race to seal a Champions League spot.


Since Jose Mourinho's departure, Bale has scored four times in two starts.


All in all, no one knows what the future holds for the 31-year-old, but we do know Real Madrid want him to seek pastures new.


“I think that is a conversation at the end of the season between Gareth, the club, and his parent club, our main focus and priority should be the next game,” Mason said as Sky Sports reported.


“It sounds a cliché but it is true. I am glad he is happy, he should be because he has another match ball to add to the collection. It was an excellent performance as well.


“I think the decision at the moment and the priority is Gareth is ready to train and he is happy in training.


"We have got another big week of training because we have got a massive game next weekend and hopefully we can have a happy Gareth next weekend.”


Mason added: “I thought he was outstanding. His goals were world-class. No one should have doubted that ability he has in the final third because he’s proved over a number of years that he’s one of the best in those moments.


“I was very pleased with him tonight because I thought his performance was excellent as well. He showed real commitment and he fought for the team and the moments he produced were outstanding.”
