Hardly a transfer window goes by in which Tottenham Hotspur are not linked with a swoop for Gareth Bale.
Some Spurs fans will have dreamed for a long time that the Welshman would be a returning hero and guide the club to silverware but, with every year that passes by, the chances seem to diminish further.
There were reports that Daniel Levy made a serious attempt to bring Bale back to North London during the January transfer window this year (Daily Mail) but, as always, the attempt ended in vain.
Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has all but ruled out the possibility of the Real Madrid star returning to Spurs.
However, Football.London have now revealed that Bale could be sold this summer, having not featured in either of Real Madrid’s first two games since the La Liga restart.
However, they express doubts as to whether Spurs would be able to afford the 30-year-old.
Meanwhile, former Spurs academy goalkeeper, Oscar Janssen, has told Tribal Football that Bale is likely to see out his contract with Real Madrid.

It is no secret at this point that Real Madrid would get rid of Bale if they could. The last thing they want to be doing amidst this crisis is paying £350,000 a week to a player who is not even in the manager’s plans. However, there are major question marks over whether Bale actually has the ambition to return to the Premier League and prove himself again. He seems pretty content to warm the bench at Madrid and continue collecting his paycheck.
