The Spanish press continues to link Gareth Bale with a return to Tottenham.
Don Balon claims Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is is “fed up” with Bale’s injuries and has decided to sell him next summer.
The story suggests Perez could offer Bale in an exchange deal for Harry Kane.
Meanwhile, Sport via (Sport Witness) also believes the Welshman will be sold by Madrid next summer. They claim Bale is valued at €80m and that Spurs would be willing to offer players in part exchange.
All of the above is almost certainly complete nonsense. Of course, the European champions will have one eye on Kane – why wouldn’t they?
But there’s no way Tottenham would let their most important player go in exchange for Bale, who is 28 and injury prone.
Leaving Kane out of it, I don’t think Spurs will go in for Bale anyway. Even if he eventually gets over the worst of his injuries, his salary remains unrealistic.
