Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been linked with a move to Manchester United (Marca) as well as a return to Spurs (The Sun) in recent weeks.

The Welshman has had a difficult season at the Spanish capital as he has has been overlooked in many games by manager Zinedine Zidane.

Reports indicate that Zidane considers Bale surplus to requirements, and has thus told the former Spurs star that he is allowed to leave.

However, The Mirror recently reported that the 29-year-old is not too keen on a move back to the Premier League, and wishes Madrid to honour his bumper () contract which still has three years left.

Former Sunderland full-back Micky Gray has said that Tottenham fans will be over the moon if the club can bring Bale back to North London.

Speaking to Jim White on TalkSport (14/05/2019 at 10:45 pm), he said, “Tottenham fans will be absolutely licking their lips if he can go back to play for Spurs, they would absolutely love it.

“You’re talking about a World Class player making their team better than they already are. Taking them to that next level.”

The 44-year-old further was quite confident that the pacey left-footer would prefer a return to Spurs over a move to Man Utd.

If asked if he would choose Tottenham over the Red Devils, Gray added, “Well, when you think Tottenham have got Champions League football next season and they are in the Champions League final now. Absolutely.

“Forget about his age, I think Man United have to go down a different avenue. They are four or five years away from challenging again, maybe even longer than that.

“But Bale is perfect for a club like Spurs. If there is an option in England and in the Premier League, I think Tottenham tops that list in the sides that want him. Everyone would want a Bale.”

Realistically, Tottenham are unlikely to pay the asking price it would take bring Bale back to North London, and the Welshman will also have to take a pay cut to make the move.

A potential loan deal has been mooted, and that is the only way we are likely to see the 4-time Champions League winner back at his old stomping ground.
