In the most unexpected transfer saga of the summer, Gareth Bale is edging closer than ever to a Real Madrid exit with former club Tottenham Hotspur reportedly edging closer an agreement. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Welshman has already told his Real Madrid teammates that he is going to Spurs.
Bale’s agent, too, added fuel to the fire by saying, “this is the closest Gareth has been to leave, talks ongoing.”
Romano also reported that just the last details need to be agreed before the deal is made official.
Bale Edging Closer to Spurs Move
An Iconic Return on the Cards for Gareth Bale?
After seven years at Real Madrid, and a whole collection of trophies later, Gareth Bale is reportedly looking increasingly likely to making a hero’s return. The Spurs fans need a morale boost, the entire club does, after paying witness to Mourinho ball in a dismal defeat to Everton.
The Amazon Documentary brought some short lasted hope before this was crushed on the opening day. By bringing Gareth Bale back in, Daniel Levy can buy himself time amid poor results, and bring the excitement back to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
The deal, while risky when considering finances and Bale’s lack of game time in recent years, is one that could give the entire club hope once again.
When thinking about the transfer from a footballing point of view, the deal makes perfect sense. Financially, however, it seems a risk. According to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs and Real Madrid are talking about a £17 million per season loan deal. The Welshman would instantly re-enter the Spurs set up as one of the highest earners.
A potential deal of £17 million per season for a 31-year-old, who hasn’t had consistent playing time for at least a year, is certainly a risk. The question has to be posed, despite adding a much needed nostalgic hero status, is a deal for Gareth Bale one with too many risks?
