Tottenham could finally land Gareth Bale, Real Madrid admit they could sell
Tottenham could finally be able to bring Gareth Bale back to the Premier League, with Real Madrid open to letting the Welsh winger go this summer.
According to a report from AS, Bale is among a number of players Madrid see as being expendable in the coming months.
The former Southampton and Spurs man is on a whopping contract at the Bernabeu. Indeed, the Guardian previously reported Bale is earning £350,000-a-week after tax.
Obviously, those wages could well be a problem for Spurs if they do want to make a move. With the current financial markets in disarray and Daniel Levy having a strict say on all monetary matters at the club, it could well scupper any hopes Spurs have.
However, Bale could well be willing to take a pay cut to seal a move back to England. At 30, Bale is entering the latter years of his glittering career.
The Welshman has two years to run on his current deal in Madrid. It is not yet confirmed if Madrid would demand a fee for Bale or simply be happy to get him off the wage bill.

This has been one that has rumbled on for some time now. Bale has long been courted by Spurs fans for a return to the club.
His form prior to leaving the club was blistering. And in fairness to Bale, he’s been a massive success for Madrid as well.
Champions League titles and goals in big games have proven his ability and quality. However, will Spurs really fork out around £300k-a-week to bring him back?
It’s hard to see it happening, in all honesty. While Bale would bring quality and a winning mentality to the club, it could well open the floodgates in terms of other players demanding bigger pay packets.
