Daniel Levy will offer the next head coach of Tottenham Hotspur the opportunity to re-sign Gareth Bale on loan ahead of next season.
The Mail claim that as part of the original agreement, Tottenham included the option to secure the first refusal on a second loan deal.
The deal will not be as simple as Spurs informing Real Madrid that they want to retain the services of the 31-year-old, Bale also has to agree to a North London return.
Tottenham are said to be paying in the region of £240,000-per-week, which equates to around £12million in wages towards the eyewatering amount of money he earns in Spain.
Bale is expected to return to the Spanish capital next month with a year to run on his contract at the club where he is not expected to play a significant role under Zinedine Zidane.
Levy is aware of how much more it would actually cost to replace Bale if he had to dip into the transfer market.
A second loan spell is certainly something which would make sense for Spurs given the form that Bale showed in the win against Sheffield United. Whether he would want to return to the club given the fact that Champions League football looks to me too much of an ask remains to be seen.
