Reports in the media were dominated yesterday by speculation linking Gareth Bale with a potential return to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Sun claimed that Real Madrid had been offered back to Spurs on a loan deal where the North London club would around £250,000 a week towards Bale’s wages along with a £10m fee for a season.
The Mirror are reporting that Bale will snub a return to Tottenham and is instead happy to remain at Madrid where he earns a staggering £600,000 a week of which he still has three years left to run on his current deal.
Bale was not included by Zinedine Zidane in the squad for the fixtures against Villarreal and Real Sociedad with suggestions that the Frenchman is pushing the 29-year-old towards the exit at the Spanish giants.
The Welshman has scored 19 times for Madrid in all competitions this season but has still found himself being booed by his home supporters in some fixtures.
While the vast majority of Spurs fans have fond memories of Bale tearing it up in a lilywhite shirt, it appears there is little chance of a return.
Subsidising his huge wages would prove to be a pivotal problem for chairman Daniel Levy while he player himself seems to be in no rush to return to the Premier League.
