According to a report in The Express, Real Madrid are ready to present Tottenham Hotspur with an opportunity to sign Gareth Bale on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Bale appears to have regained his sharpness after a slow start to his second spell at Tottenham and Jose Mourinho will be hoping that the Welshman remains fit for the remainder of the campaign and carries on in the same vein of form.
AS reported yesterday that far from regretting their decision to allow Bale to leave on loan, the Real Madrid hierarchy are delighted to see the 31-year-old coming into form over the last few weeks.
The report suggested that the Spanish giants are hopeful of taking Bale’s salary off their wage bill so that they can channel funds towards a summer move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
The Express have now said that Real Madrid believe that they can sell Bale on a permanent basis to Tottenham at the end of the season.
Los Blancos are said to be hoping to capitalise on Bale’s sudden burst of form to convince the North Londoners to make the loan deal permanent.

There are still many variables over the next few months that would likely dictate whether Spurs would want to sign Bale, including the Welshman’s fitness until the end of the season. However, even if Tottenham do decide to re-sign Bale (either on loan for another season or in a permanent transfer), Real Madrid would have to likely subsidise a significant portion of the 31-year-old’s wages.
