According to Spanish sports news outlet  Don Balon Welsh superstar Gareth Bale could make a surprise return to Tottenham, despite his current employers, Real Madrid, having previously rejecting advances from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Isco and Marco Asensio have been in decent form,proving more than capable of playing at the top,and the injury prone Welshman is fast becoming surplus to requirements at the Bernabéu and has even been subjected to jeers and whistles from the Real fans during some of his appearances this season.

Bale, 28, was linked all summer with linking up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford and speculation persists. However, Don Balon  are reporting that he would rather a return move to Tottenham, the club that helped make him a star.

It was back in May 2015,when Bale was being heavily criticised for poor performances towards the end of his second season as a Galactico, Mauricio Pochettino said Tottenham were “open to receive” him back at the club  if he was “not comfortable” at Real Madrid.

“Tottenham will always have a place in my heart,” said Bale a year after his move to Spain. “I hope the fans still love me even though I’ve moved on. I love Spurs fans; you never know, I could come back one day.”

Now Don Balon is probably not the most reliable of sources however you would like to think the club is still in Bale’s heart.

So do you think he might come back or with injuries piling up is he past his sell by date. Let us know your thoughts.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I’d have him back in a heartbeat. The only problem would be his wages. A front 4 of Kane, Bale, Alli and Eriksen would be awesome!! Sitting behind that we’d have two of Wanyama, Dembele, Dier and Winks. That in my eyes would be a title winning team with our defence. If only Gaz would take a pay cut to come home.

  2. I would have Bale back in a heartbeat, but Levy won’t pay the kind of money RM would demand.

    It also depends on Poch and how Bale would fit in to his project.

    Bale wouldn’t (or couldn’t) produce the form over those wonderful 3 to 4 seasons which took us to the

    Quarters of the CL, and enabled us to finish 4th, 5th, 4th and 5th over those seasons (the final 5th place

    resulting in our highest points total in the PL, apart from last year, with 72 points – and a finale’

    in which Bale almost single-handedly dragged an otherwise mediocre and unbalanced side to within 1 point of a CL

    place again) …But Bale today would still have enough about him to add greatly to our vastly improved set-up.

    We’ve had two legends come back to the fold before. Sheringham and Keane.

    Although they were not as good as they were before they left in the first place,

    they at least added something to Spurs again, and contributed pretty well.

    Bale would do better than them, barring injuries, but Levy wouldn’t go beyond £40m ..if at all.

    And Real wouldn’t release him for less than £65m (which United would willingly pay).

    • Keane added nothing to Spurs when he came back from Liverpool, we sold them a perfectly good player and they sent back a broken man. Using Keane as an example isn't ideal in my opinion.

  3. Bale is one of Us. A son of Spurs. We have all seen that Bale have many a time scoring goals..out of many angles..Thats why Real Madrid bought him. If one is injured..he cannot give 100%. We get back our son.n Poch will rest him..if he need to be rested..not OVERTAX him..n he gets injured..n cant play. attacking midfield..Bale..Christiansen..Dembele..Winks..Kane. An additional 10 goals.

  4. As Bale is older n more matured..We do not have to fork out too much money.

    Real M…had benefitted…now give him back to Us.

  5. Nah, not for me, he’s injured more times than Dembele!! Wouldn’t train at Poch’s tempo either. We have Lamela coming back, that’ll do nicely. COYS!

  6. Sorry to try to drown the cheers but:

    1. He’s getting on a bit now;

    2. he’s often injured;

    3. He’s only interested in the money;

    4. he’ll no doubt be doing this to bump up his price;

    5. we played team football now, not celebrity football.

  7. We wouldn't afford his wages and even if we could, other players would want to earn the same as him.
    Signing Bale would upset the squad too much and I think we have out grown the need for him.

  8. He insisted on leaving. I appreciate the happy memories of him, but it was in a different kind of team. I think that Tottenham led by Levy and Pochettino and back-up staff has become a club that good footballers are very keen to play at. It's really going places, plays attractive and effective football, and has a devoted and lively supporter-base.
