“So the decision we are going to make will be for the good of the team, but also for its own good.
“It is very important that he has a happy season with us and I think that is very important at this moment in his career.”
Tottenham fans have long been waiting for Bale to return to their club after joining Real Madrid in 2013 for a world record deal for £ 85.3million.
Bale is on loan again for a season from the reigning Spanish champions after a turbulent period in Madrid during which he fought for the playing time under coach Zinedine Zidane.

Mourinho hopes Bale will be able to form an impressive front three that also includes Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
Tottenham are positive on Sunday after showing good form including beating Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Mourinho said: ‘It’s a big game on Sunday against a team that plays well, gets very good results and is also a London derby.
“So let’s forget what we’ve done well in the last few weeks, where we’ve achieved good results and a new period starts on Sunday.”
