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.
