Spurs are looking into the possibility of bringing back Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale, to the club.
According to reports from The Express this weekend, Spurs are looking into a permanent deal for the Welsh star.
The report claims that while a loan move is not on the table, Spurs are looking to bring Bale back to the club on a permanent basis. This, despite Bale being on a reported £650,000 a week in the Spanish capital.
Spurs have already signed Gedson Fernandes this summer. But it would appear Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing even more names into his squad.
Sitting in sixth in the table, Mourinho will be keen to push on now and secure a top-four spot.
If he can somehow convince Madrid and Bale to agree terms with his club, then that Champions League spot would be more or less secure.
A real difference-maker
There’s no other way to put it, but Gareth Bale is one of the true world-class players in world football.
He’s won trophies galore during his time in Spain. Not only that, but Bale has turned up in the big games when it matters, too.
Giant goals in the Champions League final – one more than one occasion – have proved that Bale is capable of stepping up when it really matters.
Given Spurs’ failure to capture a trophy, including their failure in the Champions League final last season, having someone with a winning nature about him such as Bale would be ideal.
A boost for the fans
Spurs fans have seen their club riddled with injuries this seasons. More importantly, they’ve seen top-scorer and skipper, Harry Kane, ruled out until the end of the season.
They are looking a bit thin on the ground when it comes to attacking options.
That’s why, then, if Bale was to arrive it would give the Spurs fans an enormous lift. He’s a player already known and loved by the home fans.
With little to prove and still in his prime really, Bale would give those Spurs fans cause for optimism.
In what is a tense battle for the top four, getting the Spurs fans onside and having Bale in the XI might well be just the tonic the club needs to secure that fourth-place spot.
