Report: Gareth Bale makes decision on potential return to Tottenham


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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What a surprise that Bale would want to stay for 600K. Seems a sure thing to me that Spurs would NOT pay 10M + 250K of his wages for a 1 year loan. I’m also pretty sure that Levy would actually laugh at this “deal”. Looks to me that RM has 1.8M in salary to fork out for a player that the manager “supposedly” doesn’t want to play. Everyone say ahhhhhhhh for RM – what a pity!

  2. With the proviso that there’s any truth in the report of a return… If Bale’s pay and conditions are replicated for a return to Tottenham — as a conquering hero as a huge bonus — what possible grounds can he have for refusing? Does he enjoy being shunned by Zidane and reviled by the Real fans?

  3. Why would we want a 29 year old in our young squad? He would spend most of the time in the medical room. For £250 per week!!!? I’m sureHarry and the boys would love that ?
