One stumbling block holding up superstar’s Spurs return

A report from Italian outlet CalcioMercato that there is only one thing is stopping Gareth Bale from rejoining Spurs and sealing a a return back to the Premier League.

Bale famously left Tottenham for Real Madrid back in 2013 for a then world record fee of around €90million, however his influence has gradually reduced especially this season, with the Welshman making 26 appearances for Zinedine Zidane’s men, scoring a very respectable 16 times and assisting twice.

However the report from suggests that Spurs and Real Madrid are miles apart in their valuation for Bale, as things stand, that is the obstacle that Spurs are currently facing.

The Los Blancos’ current valuation stands at about €80 million while Tottenham are said to be offering €50 million for their former player’s signature and that is the stumbling block.

The article adds that Manchester United are in the race to sign the player, however, the Welshman is said to prefer a move back to Tottenham over anyone else.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We seem to be linked with a lot of wingers but if we could sign Bale that really would be THE marquee signing!

  2. Spurs are not facing any stumbling block because they probably do not want Bale.
    It`s more likely a case of Real Madrid probably want to offload a player they paid too much for, in an attempt to recoup their losses.
    But i doubt they will

  3. What stumbling block? There is no stumbling block. The whole Bale returning to Spurs is farcical. The Italian report you lifted is baseless. They lifted the nonsense from no other than the proven Spanish liars Don Balon. Can any of you ever see Daniel Levy paying Real Madrid anywhere near what they were forced pay for Bale FIVE years ago?
    Secondly, can any of you see Daniel Levy paying any player £350k a week which is what Bale is reported to be earning? I could see the fall out with the other players if he ever did.
    As much as I would like to see Gareth Bale back playing for Spurs, I just can’t see it ever happening and the only link with Spurs by the foreign and home press is his past with our club. The English hacks will run with the story of course as will blogs. Non starter.

  4. Real are going to really struggle shifting Bale as I doubt anyone wants him. He’s 28 and injury prone. They overpaid on the fee and wages. How many teams can afford even half his salary? Even Mourinho and United said no, as they have Sanchez.

    Levy has a clause allowing him to match any bid made within 48 hours or something. If the interest was real (pardon the pun), there would have been movement before now. Strangely, the only option I do see other than Bale rotting at Real is Madrid selling to Spurs on the cheap but they’d also have to subsidise the salary like City did for Adebayor!
