Danny Murphy has told Gareth Bale to re-sign for Tottenham – in a deal that would benefit both parties, according to the former Spurs midfielder.
Bale left Tottenham for Madrid in the summer of 2013 and has gone on to win two La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues and a host of other domestic trophies.
However, the Welshman has endured a difficult last few months in the Spanish capital, making just two appearances post-lockdown – with his troubled relationship with Zinedine Zidane well-published, making a summer move away from the Bernabeu extremely likely.
And Murphy, who played for Spurs between 2006 and 2008, reckons now is the right time for Bale to return to north London – in what he describes would be a huge boost for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Watch everything Murphy told talkSPORT below.
“The place for Gareth is Tottenham.”
“Go back to where you’re loved and help Tottenham be competitive once again.”
“There has to be a way out!” ⚪️
