Some Spurs fans are split on whether it would be a good idea to allow Dele Alli to join Real Madrid on loan if that were to enable Gareth Bale to return to North London.

News about a possible return for the Welshman has slowly been gathering pace over the course of the day.

ESPN first reported that the North Londoners had moved ahead of Manchester United in the race for the 31-year-old before Football.London’s Alasdair Gold confirmed that the club’s interest in the Real Madrid man was genuine.

If that was not enough to get some Spurs fans excited, Fabrizio Romano and David Ornstein then revealed in quick succession that the club was working on a deal to re-sign Bale.

Since then, it has been reported by The Telegraph that one of the options on the table is a possible swap deal that would see Alli going to the Spanish giants either on a loan deal or a permanent transfer.

This has caused concern among a section of Spurs fans who believe the club will be making a huge mistake by letting the England midfielder leave in exchange for Bale.

However, others were much more enthusiastic about the idea and suggested that the swap deal would improve the side.

Spurs Web Opinion

While I can see why a potential loan deal taking Dele to Madrid would make sense, I do not see it happening this summer. I believe the England midfielder is a part of Jose’s plans and the club still value him pretty highly. Allow the former MK Dons man to join Madrid in exchange for an injury-prone 31-year-old is not a deal Daniel Levy is likely to be enthusiastic about.
