Gareth Bale left Real Madrid’s training ground friendly with Getafe early as he closes in on a return to Tottenham. Spurs opened talks with Real Madrid yesterday over a loan deal for the Welshman as they look to bring him back to north London to rejuvenate Jose Mourinho’s depleted side.
Spurs were beaten by Everton at home on Sunday in their Premier League opener and Daniel Levy has now decided to take action.
The club are also closing in on the £27million signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.
During discussions with Los Blancos, Tottenham enquired about the possibility of bringing Bale back and Real Madrid appeared open to paying 50 percent of his wages.
Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has confirmed that his client is interested in a return to Tottenham and that talks remain ongoing.
He was never set to play in the match due to a knee problem but it appears he already has his heart set on a return to Tottenham.
Bale has been linked with a return to Tottenham several times in recent years but Spurs now stand in good stead of bringing him back to the club.
The two clubs remain in talks and there has been some suggestion Dele Alli could go the other way to Real Madrid on a temporary deal in order to balance the share of the wages.
Speaking while with Wales on international duty, Bale made it clear he would be open to returning to England if Real Madrid allowed him to leave the club, referencing that they’d previously blocked his lucrative move to China.
