Following Zinedine Zidane’s reappointment at Real Madrid yesterday, there are question marks over the future of Tottenham target Gareth Bale.
The Welshman has never really been truly accepted by the Madrid faithful and according to The Express, Bale could depart.
As per the article, Zidane has been handed full control over transfers and that has sparked speculation of a swap deal involving Bale and Christian Eriksen.
That wouldn’t be particularly bad business for Spurs.
Bale is only two years older than the Dane and the Wales international has achieved more in the game.
It is perhaps not the 29-year-old that should excite Spurs about Zidane’s second coming at Madrid.
Luka Modric, another ex-Spurs player could now face an uncertain future at the Bernabeu.
The 33-year-old was a World Cup runner-up with Croatia in the summer and won the Balon d’Or for his efforts.
Modric is the born winner that Spurs desperately crave. His 180k-a-week wages, according to Total Sportek, shouldn’t be a problem either.
Bale would be a sound addition to the squad but signing Modric is perhaps a more important piece of summer business for Pochettino.
The Spurs squad is young and inexperienced and the re-signing of their former playmaker would represent a real coup.
