Tottenham Hotspur fans laugh off rumours Bale has bought home in the area

Gareth Bale will always be associated with Tottenham Hotspur given that he developed into a top talent at the North London outfit.

The Wales international earned a move to Real Madrid in 2013 and has gone on to win 10 trophies, including three Champions League crowns.

Every so often, though, Bale is linked with a return to England, and more recently, Tottenham have cropped up as a possible destination.

A rumour has emerged on social media that the attacker has purchased a property not far from Spurs’ training base.

Tommy Sandhu posted the speculation on Twitter, and of course, Tottenham fans have been reacting.

At this stage of the season when transfer rumours begin filtering through at a faster pace, stories with little foundation come to the surface.

Tottenham supporters have previously given mixed reactions to the thought of Bale returning.

The 28-year-old has scored 13 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions this season, but has been plagued by injury woes.
