According to a report by Spanish news outlet AS, Real Madrid are celebrating the fact that Gareth Bale is showing some form for Spurs after the Welshman’s brace against Burnley on Sunday.
Bale has been on the fringes of the Tottenham squad since arriving on-loan from Real Madrid last summer but the winger has shown signs of getting back to his best over the last few weeks.
The 31-year-old was handed what was just his third Premier League start of the season by Jose Mourinho against Burnley and he was arguably Tottenham’s best player in the game, scoring twice and providing an assist for Harry Kane.
AS claimed that every good performance Bale puts in for Spurs is being cheered by the Real Madrid hierarchy, with the club desperate to get rid of the winger.
The report claims that the La Liga giants do not want to pay the entirety of Bale’s wages next season since it could jeopardise their transfer plans in the next window.
It is said that Los Blancos are still hopeful that Bale would complete a permanent move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer so that they can use the savings on his wages to fund a potential deal for PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.
Spurs Web Opinion
The chances of Bale being re-signed by Spurs have certainly gone up due to the Welshman’s performances over the last few weeks. However, under no scenario can I imagine Spurs (or any other club for that matter) being willing to pay the entirety of Bale’s wages next season, particularly given the current financial climate. Real Madrid would likely have to subsidise at least half of the 31-year-old’s wages if they want him to leave.
