Tottenham have reportedly made the first bid for former player Gareth Bale, whose days appear numbered at Real Madrid. Spurs are ready to pay 60 million euros to bring back the Welshman to White Hart Lane.
Real seem determined to sell Bale having become exasperated by the repeated injuries that seem to afflict the forward, who cost the Spanish giants over 100 million euros four years ago.
Wanted in England by Manchester United and Chelsea, Bale is very much coveted by his former club, according to teamtalk.com.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is confident that a forward line of Eriksen, Alli and Bale, behind Kane can turn Mauricio Pochetinno’s side into Man City’s main rivals for the title. Relationships between Spurs and Real are excellent, and Florentino Perez, the Madrid President, could accept a gentleman agreement, as Alli and Kane are targets for the future for the European champions.
Bale has missed 40 of his last 60 games. Zinedine Zidane was hoping to rely on his services for the derby with Atletico Madrid this weekend, however, Bale is injured again and will now be unavailable for a month.
In more than four years since signing for Real Madrid, Bale has accumulated a long list of injuries. This, the most recent, is the 24th injury since he first entered the Bernabeau.
At 28, Gareth Bale has won the Real Champions League three times and may well welcome a move back to the Premier League.
