He couldn’t, could he? Gareth Bale back at Tottenham Hotspur?
According to Marca, via Sport Witness, Real Madrid are actually prepared to offer Bale back to Tottenham this summer in a bid to sign Christian Eriksen.
Bale netted his 13th goal of the season in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Levante on Sunday night.
However, the Wales international shrugged off the congratulations of his teammates, cutting a frustrated figure as he headed back to the centre circle.
The 29-year-old has struggled for starts in recent weeks and is expected to be on the bench for Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Barcelona on Wednesday night.
Bale – valued at £72m by Transfermarkt – has long been linked with a return to England, where he scored 56 times in 203 appearances for Tottenham and five goals in 44 games for Southampton.
The Tottenham fans have been discussing re-signing the attacker and many are desperate to see him return to the club in this summer’s transfer window:
