According to a fresh exclusive report from El Chiringuito TV, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has met with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and they discussed the availability of Gareth Bale in the January transfer window.
The Spanish football expert Juanfe Sanz spoke to El Chiringuito TV about a potential deal which would see Bale return to Spurs in the ongoing transfer window.
Of course, the Welshman’s potential move away from the capital and Los Blancos is nothing particularly new and speculation has been growing once again on his future.
The big fat Tottenham quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Spurs?
This is even more reinforced by the fact that Jose Mourinho is now the new coach of the London team, as the Portuguese manage publicly expressed his interest in signing the attacker while he was still manager of Manchester United, as relayed by the Express.
With Bale’s standing at Real Madrid continually diminishing, maybe it would be a good idea for Perez to pull the trigger.
Even though he started the season quite well as one of the Galacticos – even netting two goals and adding two assists to the tally as well – Bale slowly but surely fell out of favour as injuries and absences started to mount.
Now, halfway into the 2019/20 season, he has only started nine games for Real Madrid in La Liga, playing just 937 minutes of action across all competitions.
Of course, we shouldn’t forget that generally speaking, the now 30-year-old star has been rather successful in Spain overall, clinching four Champions League titles and one La Liga crown in the process.
But if there truly is no place for him in the squad under Zinedine Zidane, maybe Perez should indulge Levy and sanction this move in the ongoing January window.
At the moment, that certainly seems like a win-win scenario that would benefit both parties, including Bale who could get a second chance at the club where he established his reputation.
