Tottenham could make a loan move for Gareth Bale late in the transfer window, according to Football Insider.
Bale has been linked with a return to Spurs in the past, but now it seems he is closer to leaving Real Madrid than he has ever been.
The Welshman asked to be left out of Real’s squad to face Manchester City in the Champions League this week and was pictured playing golf on the day his club were dumped out of Europe (via the London Evening Standard).
And Tottenham apparently could offer Bale a way out of Madrid if he is keen to depart in the coming weeks.
Football Insider believes Spurs are keeping tabs on the 31-year-old’s situation ahead of what would be a sensational ‘late-window’ loan move for their former talisman.
It is believed the Londoners will rely on Real picking up a big chunk of Bale’s £600,000-a-week wages, which is surely the only way a deal will happen.
Bale would certainly add flair and firepower to Tottenham’s front line, but we’ve heard this all before – there’s no reason to get excited yet.
