Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid nightmare looks to be coming to an end on Friday as he is traveling to London ahead of a medical before his loan move to Tottenham Hotspur is finalized. Bale, 31, has been training alone whilst at Real and it has become increasingly more obvious that the club and himself are looking to part ways.
Talks between the clubs are progressing positively and as long as they are concluded in the same manner, Bale will travel to London. Bale joined Real from Spurs originally in 2013 for a record transfer fee at the time of £85.1 million, which was only surpassed by Paul Pogba’s return to Man United. Bale began his career at Southampton as a left back before joining Tottenham and moving positions into a more forward role.
Now playing as a right winger, Bale is known for his sweet left foot, astonishing pace, and fantastic dribbling ability, he has also produced moments of magic when at both Real and Tottenham the most famous of which is his overhead kick goal against Liverpool in the Champions League final in 2018.
At 31 Gareth Bale was still attracting attention from some of Europe’s top teams including Manchester United, Inter Milan, and PSG but the Welsh forward has decided that he would prefer a return to Spurs. Although the deal isn’t fully set in stone, Bale is expected to complete his return this Friday and would be available for Spur’s game against his other former club Southampton on Sunday.
Stay tuned for more updates as they come in.
