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.



  1. I’d love to see Bale back but can’t see it happening unless he’s prepared to take a huge wage cut. Also, there’s no way Spurs would even entertain a trade for one of their stars. Neither Kane nor Alli will be sold before playing at least one season in the new stadium. I’m pretty certain this would have been made clear to them when they were negotiating their respective lengthy contract extensions.

  2. I agree that having a fit GB back would be amazing, but I wouldn’t want to lose any of the present squad (sissoko the exception) at all.
    I think another top notch striker is what we need, someone with pace which we don’t have right now.
    I think DR will go in the summer so another left sided player will be needed to, but really looking forward to the derby this week, I’ll be there COYS.

  3. The Spanish press are working on the assumption that we are still a selling club and that Kane will go the other way. Wishful thinking imo.
