Spurs and United in Bale battle


According to The Daily Mail the club are battling it out with Manchester United to bring Gareth Bale back to the Premier League, that’s according to reports in Spain.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo say both Bale and France forward Karim Benzema ‘already know’ they will leave Real Madrid this summer and the Welshman’s availability has sparked Premier League interest.

The report adds that Bale’s cause at Madrid has been undermined by persistent injury problems this season and the article says it has left him feeling unsettled.

Jose Mourinho has been continuously linked with a move for the Wales star since taking over at United, while Tottenham are considering bringing back the man they sold to the Spanish giants for £86m in 2013.

It adds how Bale has played 22 times in a difficult season for Madrid so far, scoring nine goals with Zinedine Zidane’s team languishing fourth in La Liga with 45 points from 23 games and they were dumped out of the Copa del Rey by lowly Leganes.

The Welshman was named as a substitute in Madrid’s 3-1 Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain and replaced Benzema in the 68th minute.

It adds that after such an underwhelming season domestically in Spain, Madrid are planning an overhaul to return to competing for the title in 2018-19.
And that could also see Benzema depart the club he has played for since 2009 with the 30-year-old, who has netted seven times in 27 so far this campaign, having options in France and China.

Would you take Bale back? Forgetting fees and wages for a moment. Or has that shipped sailed? Let us know your thoughts

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Not a great idea to take Injury prone big money bale back,do spurs want to waste the bale money twice! Give him to United they can afford to have him resident on the treatment table. Spurs have moved on ,never been a fan of players or managers returning. Madrid want to get rid of Bale and buy Harry-what does that tell you. We have the better players and deserve the honours that go with it, so please spurs don’t go down that road, we can win without these overpriced players. Look at Lucas, another star in the making.

  2. If Bale wants to come back to us he can tell RM to take what Spurs’ offer or he will simply let his contract run down and leave for nothing.

  3. Source? Spanish press? Not even used for fish & chip wrappers over in Espanya. RealMad are desperate to buy Harry and are throwing their left overs into the mix; 33 yo Modric, 29 yo Benzema and of course Gareth Bale. Let him remain a happy memory and someone else can pay his inflated salary. They will soon have to build a hospital in Salford to accommodate all the old crocks.
