Tottenham Hotspur are said to be set to hold talks with Real Madrid today over a return to North London for Gareth Bale.

The Daily Mail claim that Jose Mourinho is keen for the Welshman to join his ranks but there are hurdles which need to be overcome to make a deal a possibility.

Bale earns a staggering £600,000 a week at the Spanish giants and is understood to not be willing to lower his wage demands at his next club.

The 30-year-old is under contract with Los Blancos until 2022 with his agent Jonathan Barnett already having ruled out the possibility of his client leaving on a loan deal (BBC).

Bale came close to leaving the Spanish giants in the summer with a move to China only for the deal to be pulled with manager Zinedine Zidane admitting that an exit was on the cards (BBC).

The former Spurs player has made just fifteen appearances in all competitions for Madrid after another injury-hit campaign (transfermarkt).


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yes it’s that time again now that the Brazilian guy who name escapes me has long since stopped being linked with us every transfer window it’s the Gareth bale show. No chance, I think Daniel Levy does this every window just to cream over the cracks he refuses to fix. No no9 yet again but hey we were linked with bale again but just run out of time.
