Lots of Tottenham fans are still dead against the idea of Gareth Bale returning to the club after a six-year absence despite his goal against north London rivals Arsenal in a 2-2 draw in the International Champions Cup.
However, his future at the Spanish side has been called into question over the past few months following the return of Zinedine Zidane – someone he has notoriously had a difficult relationship with.
Yet the four-time Champions League winner seems headed for the exit door and Lilywhites supporters are hopeful their side will not capitalise on his expected departure.
Here is just some of the reaction:
Former Tottenham Hotspur player Gareth Bale still scoring against Arsenal, not even a single Real Madrid player went over to congratulate him on the goal.
Bring this man back home to a club which the Spurs supporters would adore him.

No we don’t. He ended it. It’s over. Forget him.

We are not bales home, he no longer cares about us and nor should he, he’s a Welshmen who was brought up through saints academy, who forced a move out the club, he gets 600k so there’s zero chance we are signing him, every summer the same rumour, every summer it doesn’t happen

I hate the phrase ”bring him home” he wasn’t a spurs academy graduate, he doesn’t care about Spurs, people still forget the way he treated the club when he heard Madrid were interested.
it ent happening and the sooner some of our fans get that in their heads the better

Speak for yourself. Let him stay where he is

Move on – he is not walking through the doors at WHL unless it’s into the visitor’s locker room…

Can we please stop this bale business? We don’t adore him. We remember the good times but they were in the past. Bored of listening to this now

I dont think itd be good to bring him back tbh

I don’t want him. Agree Madrid haven’t treated him well but he could get out if he wanted by being paid a slightly more reasonable wage. Spurs isn’t his home and his wages would cause massive issues with the current squad. Oh and he’s always injured.
