Peter Crouch has admitted he would love to see Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale return to Tottenham this summer.
The Welsh superstar has had a turbulent season in Madrid, where he’s scored 14 goals in 42 games across all competitions.
He’s had a lot of anger aimed at him from supporters at the Bernabeu, despite 102 goals in 231 games for the Spanish giants.
According to the Sun, Bale is on Spurs’ radar ahead of the summer and their transfer committee is discussing the possibility of a loan swoop not a permanent move.
It is understood that Madrid want to offload the 29-year-old and would accept a £10million fee to loan him out for next season.
Crouch believes that Bale would be brilliant if he made a return to his former club six years after he left to join Madrid.
“If he is not going to be used regularly next season, I would love to see him return to Spurs. I saw reports earlier this week of him going back to the club on loan, with a £10million loan fee suggested,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.
“Could you imagine his searing pace alongside Harry Kane? I think it would pay a lot of dividends.
“When Gareth is fit and healthy, he is one of the most exciting players in the world.”
Bale has proven himself to be a top-class player during his career and has been a serial winner since his switch to the Spanish capital.
He would surely be welcomed with open arms if he did return to North London, but serious question marks have to be raised when it comes to forking out a colossus £10million for just a one-year loan.
The left-footed attacker would be a marquee addition for the new stadium, but a loan deal would ruin that to an extent and Mauricio Pochettino would have him just for a year.
