Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has claimed that if the club were to sign Gareth Bale, it would transform them into Premier League title contenders.
Redknapp was the man in charge of the North London outfit when Bale rose to prominence with his memorable performances against Inter Milan during the Champions League campaign in the 2010-11 campaign.
The Welshman bagging an incredible hat-trick against the Italian giants at the San Siro despite losing 4-3 and destroyed right-back Maicon after giving the Brazilian a torrid time in the return fixture at White Hart Lane.
Bale departed Tottenham in 2013 for what was at the time a world record £85.3million transfer fee.
Despite having gone on to win some of the biggest prizes in the game including four Champions League crowns and two La Liga titles, he has found himself out of favour under Zinedine Zidane (transfermarkt).
Redknapp claims that Bale would pose a potent attacking threat alongside Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Dele Alli and would give the club the chance if ending their twelve-year wait for a trophy.
“Of the possible destinations, if Bale went back to Tottenham to team up with an already lively frontline you could see Spurs do some serious damage,” Redknapp told The Sun.
“Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Bale. If it were my call, I’d throw all four of them on together and step back to watch lift-off.
“Bale could change Tottenham from European contenders to Premier League title challengers.”
