Football.London have suggested that Tottenham Hotspur may have not yet given up hope of bringing Gareth Bale back to the club.

The former Spurs star has been linked with a return to North London several times over the last few years, with reports indicating that Tottenham once again made an effort to sign him during the January transfer window (Daily Mail).

The Welshman has hardly been handed any game time since the La Liga restart, despite Real Madrid winning the league title this month.

The 31-year-old cut a rather aloof figure as Zinedine Zidane men celebrated their triumph last week.

Football.London claim that Spurs could still return for the wide man’s services this summer, with Real Madrid keen on selling him.

It is suggested that Bale could be used as an additional wide option next season and could take Lucas Moura’s place in the Tottenham starting eleven.

The report claims that the former Tottenham man could be an appealing option for Jose Mourinho since he can also be used as a centre-forward.

It is suggested that Bale’s injury problems might not put Tottenham off from pursuing a deal as the four-time Champions League winner can also be rotated with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane up front.

Spurs Web Opinion

Bale and his agent have repeatedly admitted that the Welshman will see out his contract at Madrid and is in no rush to leave the Spanish capital. So, even if Madrid are ready to sell him for a cut-price deal, I cannot see too many clubs matching the wages he is currently earning. I doubt the 31-year-old would consider taking a wage cut to come back to Spurs.
