`Bale is back`: Gareth Bale returns to Tottenham Hotspurs after 7 years

Share

Gareth Bale is expected to join Tottenham over the weekend having been frozen out at Real Madrid by Zinedine Zidane, who now claims he hasn't spoken to the Welsh winger ahead of the move.

"We anticipate that he will be match fit after October's global break".

Gareth Bale "gave up fighting" for a place at Real Madrid, according to former Los Blancos striker and director of football Predrag Mijatovic. I'm hungry, I'm motivated I can't wait to get started.

The Wales global left Tottenham seven years ago to join Real in what was then a world-record fee worth £85million. "Our club wishes the best of luck to a player who is part of one of the most successful periods of our history".

However, he had fallen out of favour since Zidane's return as coach in May 2019.

La Liga returned to full training later than most players in the Premier League which has further exacerbated his relative lack of fitness. "I know what he's done at this club, nobody can take that away from him and these are simply things that can happen for different reasons".

"You don't realise until you are there, in those situations, in finals, and knowing how to deal with those situations, the nerves, the pressure, and that all comes with experience". We've got two players in every position and I've got two full-backs. "I want to bring that mentality back to Tottenham".

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Real have insisted upon a buy-back clause in the deal.

Spurs have, however, moved to the front of the transfer queue due to their strong emotional and professional ties with Bale.

Now Jose Mourinho, a former manager of Real Madrid, has chose to bring him back to Tottenham and believes he can reignite a faltering team which made it to the Champions' League final in 2019 but has failed to recapture that form despite having quality players like England striker Harry Kane and France's World Cup winning goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

"Zidane needs to look in the mirror and ask himself: 'Did I make a mistake?'"

In recent times, not even club legends Ronaldo and Iker Casillas have been spared the jeers and whistles inside the stadium, giving some indication of the lack of support this fan base often provides.
