Gareth Bale has reportedly already signed a pre-agreement to join Tottenham at the end of the season when his Real Madrid contract expires, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.
This comes after El Nacional reported last week that Spurs had struck an agreement to bring Bale home again at the end of this season.
Bale spent last term on loan at Spurs, his second spell at the club, making 34 appearances and scoring 16 goals (Transfermakt).
However, the Wales international has struggled on his return to the Bernabeu and has rarely been used by Carlo Ancelotti due to a series of injury setbacks.
But TuttoMercatoWeb claim a third move to Tottenham is on the cards upon the expiry of his current deal with Madrid in the summer.
The report goes on to state that Bale would receive a signing-on bonus from Spurs to make up for the absence of a transfer fee in a potential deal.
It comes after the 32-year-old stated his desperation to reach the World Cup in Qatar towards the end of the year, which could be the final international tournament of his illustrious career (The Athletic).
Spurs Web Opinion
Getting Bale back for a third time would be a good move, even if it would be short-term. He managed to produce on loan last season so he can still do it at the top level. The injury concerns have piled up this term though, but the risk doesn’t seem too bad if the money is there.
