Reliable journalist Alasdair Gold has dropped the biggest hint yet that Tottenham could re-sign Gareth Bale this summer.
The 31-year-old Welshman left Spurs to sign for Madrid in 2013 and has gone on to win four Champions League titles, two La Liga crowns and a host of other honours.
Bale has continuously been linked with a move back to Tottenham in recent windows, but his crazy wages, which are reportedly in excess of £600,000, according to The Sun, have always proved to be a stumbling block for Spurs, whose highest paid player Harry Kane earns £200,000 per-week, according to the Express.
Earlier today, ESPN revealed that Tottenham had moved ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign the two-time PFA Premier League Player of the Year – with Madrid, who’re desperate to reduce their wage bill, willing to sell Bale for around £18m.
And Gold believes that Jose Mourinho’s side are pushing hard for a loan deal, but need plenty of help from the La Liga giants.
“I think it might happen,” said the Football.London reporter.
I normally roll my eyes when there's Gareth Bale questions most windows, every year. Finally, this is a window when I don't think I can. From what I understand Spurs are genuinely having a go for a loan and if they can get Real Madrid to help out a lot, I think it might happen.
