Tottenham Hotspur are once again being linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
The Welshman left North London for the Spanish capital in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85.1million (Independent).
Bale was heavily linked with a move away from the La Liga giants during the summer when manager Zinedine Zidane hinted that he was close to leaving the club (Sky Sports).
The 30-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League only for Real President Florentino Perez to halt the move at the last minute (Guardian).
Bale was won four Champions League titles since joining Los Blancos but his time in Spain has also been marred by injury and failing to win over the club’s supporters (The Sun).
Spanish football expert Juanfe Sanz as claimed that Daniel Levy and Florentino Perez have met to discuss the possibility of Bale returning to the Premier League.
“Levy, president of Tottenham, has been with Florentino today and asked him about Bale,” Sanz said on El Chiringuito TV.
Bale’s reported £600,000 a week wages will prove to be a huge stumbling block for any move to materialise (The Sun). The left-footer earns significantly more than any current Tottenham player with Kane said to take home around £200,000 a week (Telegraph).
