16 september 2020 – Gareth Bale is not much more than a block to the leg at Real Madrid at the moment, but that could end in the short term. The 31-year-old attacker would like to return to Tottenham Hotspur and that club is doing everything they can to recruit him. According to various media, the deal can be closed quickly.
It is not a purchase, but rent. The intention is that Bale will be let for a year to Tottenham, which will have to put on the table just under fifteen million euros. The salary will then be paid by Real Madrid. That is a considerable sum of money, because in Madrid Bale can count on an annual salary of seventeen million euros gross. Bale does not enjoy Zinedine Zidane’s confidence in Madrid and will meet a trainer at Tottenham who is a fan of him. According to English media, José Mourinho has urged to get the winger.
Both parties largely agree with each other in the transfer, it is only important that the final formalities are completed. After seven years with the Spanish superpower, Bale returns to the club where he experienced his big breakthrough. In 2013, Real Madrid paid just over a hundred million euros to separate the winger from London. So far, Bale has played 161 games for Real, scoring 80 goals. His contract expires in 2022.
