- Gareth Bale is very close to returning to his former club, Tottenham Hotspurs
- The player is unwanted at Real Madrid and his sale was a priority for Real Madrid this transfer window
- Many reports suggest that the deal is close to being finalized
Gareth Bale is very close to a Real Madrid exit, in favor of a return to his old club Tottenham Hotspurs. Reports from different sources suggest that a deal is close to being finalized.
His agent spoke about the players desire to return to Spurs. “That’s where he wants to go” said Barnet, Bale’s agent. Bale left Tottenham in 2013 for a fee in the region of €100 million, but, despite winning four Champions League titles, his time in the Spanish capital has soured.
One of the biggest culprits remain the Welshman’s high wages. He costs Real Madrid €45,000 per day and the club might be forced to pay half of his wages in order to force the player to move back to the Spurs.
Bale, who has two years left on his deal at Real, had previously indicated that he was happy to see the remaining years of that deal out.
However, it is clear that if he were to remain in Spain he would see little playing time. Zinedine Zidane has made that abundantly clear through his actions.
