According to Metro, Gareth Bale has said that he could return to play for Spurs once his Real Madrid career is over.
The Real Madrid man left the London club last summer for a world record fee and has continued his outstanding form in the Spanish capital.
But despite bedding in well alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and ex-Spurs midfielder Luka Modric, Bale admits he still loves Tottenham and won’t rule out a return to the North London club.
“Tottenham will always have a place in my heart. I hope the fans still love me even though I’ve moved on,’ he told BT Sport.
“I love Spurs fans. You never know, I could come back one day.
“I hope they understand that obviously Real Madrid is a massive, massive club and that they respect my decision.
“From the moment Madrid put the offer in it was difficult. Tottenham was somewhere I felt so comfortable and so happy.”
