If reports in the Spanish press are to be believed, then this is likely to be Gareth Bale’s final season with Real Madrid.

The Welshman has endured a difficult season in which he has found playing time hard to come by and has even been booed by his own fans on a couple of occasions.

The 29-year-old has been linked with several top European clubs including a return to Spurs.

According to a report in Spanish outlet AS, Madrid have slapped a price tag of £113 million on the former Tottenham man, and aren’t willing to settle for anything less.

Bale reportedly earns £26million a year before tax (around £500,000-a-week) in wages at present, and thus a return to Spurs looks highly unlikely for Bale.

There have been also been suggestions of a swap deal involving Bale and Christian Eriksen in parts of the Spanish press.

Given that Eriksen is valued by Spurs at £95 million (The Mirror), that would mean that Spurs have to cough up £18 million plus Eriksen in exchange for the speedy winger.

Thus, a return to Spurs for Bale is all but completely ruled out as Daniel Levy is unlikely to be in favour of such a large outlay for an injury prone player who will be 30 next season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Bale is worth 40 mill. He is injury prone and surely not half the player he was when we sold him to Real. Keep him or find another idiot like Man U who would pay that ridiculas money.

  2. Gareth Bale needs to let his contract run out with Rael and return to Spurs. Return to Spurs and enjoy the ride during your final years. If you say you would like to return with Spurs, “TO DARE IS TO DO! Rael’s passion was always with Ronaldo who is a (USED TO WAS FOR THE PAST THREE SEASONS) You were the match winner.
    Return to Spurs and accept a responsible salary. Yes, a salary is important, however, irresponsible wages leads only to one thing, unsatisfactory greed and a lack of respect for good personal values.
