Gareth Bale’s advisors are talking to Tottenham about a possible transfer of loans from Real Madrid.
It is known that Bale would like to return to the Mossad-where he spent six seasons between 2007 and 2013-if an agreement could be reached with Real Madrid.
Representatives of Bale are still talking to other Premier League teams, but Real Madrid has not negotiated with anyone on an agreement.
Bale told Sky Sports News earlier this month he would consider a move to the Premier League if Real Madrid let him leave and is open to joining United on loan or in a permanent move.
Tottenham is also negotiating a deal with Real Madrid to sign left-back Sergio Reguilon, while Eintracht Frankfurt striker Bas Dost is one of a range of choices that the club is looking to strengthen their attack.
Jose Mourinho said he “needs a striker” before the season opener against Everton, which Spurs lost 1-0.
In the area of £30 m, Mourinho spent on the signing of free agent goalkeeper Joe Hart, right-back Matt Doherty from Wolves, and midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton this summer, but so far back for Kane proved elusive.
Insight: ‘Bale willing to return to Spurs’
Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol on The Transfer Show:
The query that many Tottenham supporters have asked over the years, is there any chance that Gareth Bale will return to Spurs?
That I think is possible. It depends how much they want him, how much they show him and his members that they want him, and the most important aspect, of course, is his salaries. Can Spurs pay his salaries, even though they are subsidized? Even if Real Madrid pays half of its salary, does a club like Spurs want a 31-year-old player to pay £250,000 to £300,000 a week?
If Spurs wants him, if they are going to make a move for him, I think he would probably see it the same way if Manchester United were going to make a move.
Real Madrid has pushed the Delete button for Bale. He no longer exists in so far as they are concerned.
The Spanish media say his shirt has been banned from Madrid’s Real Madrid club store. There are no photographs or footage of him on their pages on social media. Currently, he is clearly not studying. He returned with a knee injury from international service so he’s in the gym at Real Madrid on his own.
Real are essentially sending out the message-a message that has been pretty obvious anyway since Zinedine Zidane didn’t pick him up-that he has no future at the club. They want him to leave, they want to get his huge earnings off their books, which are between £500,00 and £600,000 a week.
The summer transfer window will run from July 27 for 10 weeks, and will close on October 5 at 11 pm.
A domestic-only trade window between the Premier League and the EFL then runs from 5 October and closes at 5 pm on Friday 16 October. Join all the news and commentary on Sky Sports News and on the digital channels of Sky Sports like our dedicated channel Transfer Centre blog.
