Report: Real Madrid offer Tottenham the chance to loan Gareth Bale; but he won’t come cheap


Gareth Bale has been offered back to Tottenham Hotspur in a £10 million loan deal, The Sun are reporting.

Zinedine Zidane returned to the managerial hotseat at Real Madrid in March after the Spanish giants have endured a sub-standard season and is looking to make changes to his squad in the summer.

Bale earns over a staggering £600,000 a week at the Bernabeu but the current European champions are prepared to accept an offer where a club who are willing to loan the Welshman will pay around £250,000 a week towards his wages along with a £10million fee for the season.

He was recently booed by his own fas during the El Clasico loss to Barcelona in March. It was Madrid’s third consecutive home defeat for the first time in 15 years. It led to large sections of the crowd jeering Bale as he was replaced after 61 minutes.

The 29-year-old has been left out of Real’s match day squad for their last two fixtures with Zidane said to be prepared to relegate Bale to train with the Under-23 side than include him in his first-team plans.

Bale left Tottenham to join Real in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85million (BBC) and even failed to report for training in order to push through a transfer (Telegraph).

With Harry Kane reportedly earning £200,000 a week at Tottenham (The Sun), the reports of a club paying £250,000 a week towards Bale’s salary would make him the club’s highest paid player which certainly wouldn’t sit well with the squad who have worked hard to get the club in the position it is today.

Bale has three years left to run on his existing contract in Spain which would see him earn over £10million in wages.
