Everton have been tipped to make a stunning summer swoop for Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
El Chiringuito TV report that Carlo Ancelotti wants a reunion with Bale at Goodison Park, having worked with him at the Santiago Bernabeu – Bale has spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur, having fallen out of favour with Zinedine Zidane after Ancelotti’s exit.
How has Bale performed at Spurs?
A hat-trick against relegated Sheffield United at the weekend took the Welshman to nine Premier League goals for the season.
That’s more than any Everton player excluding Dominic Calvert-Lewin (15).
In total, Bale has scored 14 goals in all competitions, posting an impressive minutes per goal record of 105 (via Transfermarkt).
Bale, who will turn 32 in July, has just over a year left on his Real Madrid contract and is valued at £18million by Transfermarkt because of this.
He said during the March international break that his plan was to return to the Spanish capital at the end of the season, so it a long-term deal to stay in north London appears unlikely.
Ancelotti has already reunited with James Rodriguez and Allan on Merseyside – could he do the same with Bale?
Twitter fan feed The Toffee Blues relayed the rumour, and here’s how fans reacted.
