Paul Robinson believes Mourinho could get the best out of ex-Spurs superstar

Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has said that he would love to see Gareth Bale make a fairytale return to Spurs this month.

A report in the Express claims that Jose Mourinho is keen to bolster his attacking options before the end of the month and has set his sights on bringing Bale back to Spurs.

The report asserts that Spurs are working round the clock to ensure they can complete a permanent deal to take the Wales international to Tottenham before deadline day, with Madrid making it clear that they will not be loaning out the 30-year-old.

The report still suggests that the deal is unlikely to go through because of the forward’s bumper £650,000 a week contract which runs until June 2022, but Robinson has urged Spurs to do all they can to bring Bale back to his old stomping ground.

He insisted that Mourinho is the right man to get the best out of the Los Blancos star and that landing him would give everyone at Tottenham a massive lift.

Speaking to Football Insider, the former England No.1 said, “I’d love to see it (Bale’s proposed move to Spurs) happen. I think if anyone can get the best out of Gareth Bale it’s Jose Mourinho.

“Losing Christian Eriksen, losing that little bit of creativity, that edge he’s brought to the side in the last however many seasons that he’s been there, I think a signing like Gareth Bale would really ignite the place again. It would really give the fans a huge boost.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While it is impossible not to be excited at the prospect of Bale potentially returning to Spurs, I am not sure the transfer makes a lot of sense for the club at this moment. It would be much more prudent of us to sign young, hungry players like Steven Bergwijn who have a lot to prove at the top level rather than an injury-prone 30-year-old who is seemingly lacking in motivation.
