Gareth Bale is seemingly nudging ever closer to a sensational return to Tottenham Hotspur.
The winger is set to join the north Londoners on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, and is reportedly (Sky Sports) awaiting the green light to fly to the capital.
Bale left Tottenham back in 2013 for a then world record transfer fee of £85 million, and has enjoyed a trophy-laden stint at Real.
But the superstar has not been a favourite of Zinedine Zidane in recent years and the perception certainly from English football fans is that the Wales international is underappreciated at the Bernabeu.
Bale’s return to Spurs quite rightly the talk of the town, and one man who has been speaking about the player is ex-Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman.
When asked by Alan Brazil on talkSPORT (Thursday, 8:40am) whether he would have Bale at his former club, he said: “Any team would have him, he’s a class player. I don’t want Spurs to get him because he makes any team better.”
It seems that even Seaman can appreciate that Tottenham are set to make a top, top signing.
TBR’s View – Bale the catalyst for Tottenham change?
As Seaman says, Bale would likely make any team better.
It is simply not a question of ability – Bale has been a world-class player when he’s been on the pitch at Real Madrid.
His injury record has been far from perfect, but the 30-year-old can be utterly exhilirating, and him signing for Spurs could well be the catalyst for change at the club, and the thing that ignites Jose Mourinho’s era.
