Real Madrid have offered Tottenham Hotspur the chance to sign Gareth Bale on loan, according to the Sun.
Bale left Spurs in the summer of 2013 but has been linked with a return to the Premier League a number of times since then.
Tottenham has been mooted as a potential destination on several occasions, as has Manchester United.
But Spurs’ qualification for Champions League ahead of United has apparently put the Londoners in pole position to re-sign Bale this summer.
The Sun claims Madrid have offered Tottenham the chance to take Bale on a season-long loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
It is believed Spurs will have to pay £250,000 a week of the Welshman’s wages as well as a £10 million fee.
Zinedine Zidane is said to be eager to offload Bale due to the Madrid fans’ displeasure at his performances this season.
His departure will also get part of his wages off the salary bill, which could help the La Liga giants bring in much-needed new players.
However, it’s difficult to see a move for Bale happening – even part of his wages could prove too expensive for Tottenham.
