Bale’s return to Tottenham last season did not turn out to be the fairytale that Spurs fans would have hoped for, with the Welshman spending the majority of the campaign as a bit-part player as the North Londoners stuttered to a seventh-place finish.
However, the 32-year-old still boasted an impressive goal record at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the limited game time that he got.
According to Marca, Madrid would consider offers for Bale in January to avoid losing him for free in the summer.
It is alleged that this has alerted Spurs, who are on the lookout for a world-class forward to partner Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
