Tottenham supporters have been more upbeat in the Transfer Tavern in recent days after seeing their side get back to winning ways in the Premier League courtesy of a 5-1 demolition over Stoke City at Wembley on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men went into their clash with the Potters having won just one of their preceding six league games, but they did pick up a 3-0 success over Apoel Nicosia in midweek to give them renewed confidence ahead of Saturday’s encounter. And they certainly proved to be in inspired form as a brace from Harry Kane as well as goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen, alongside a Ryan Shawcross own goal, secured an easy win for the North London outfit at the national stadium, although it wasn’t enough to leapfrog Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League table after their last-gasp draw at Southampton.
Consequently, there have been many thrilled Spurs fans in the Tavern in the last few days, many of whom are likely to be intrigued by a welcome recent report from Diario Gol, which outlines some potentially huge information regarding the future of reported target Gareth Bale.
The 28-year-old of course left Tottenham back in 2013 to move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, and he has since helped them to win one La Liga title as well as three Champions League crowns, netting 70 goals in just 160 games along the way.
However, the Wales international has struggled with injury this term and has bagged just three goals in ten games for Zinedine Zidane’s side, and now it seems that his time at the Bernabeu could be up as reports suggest that he has reached an agreement with president Florentino Perez over his exit this summer.
And with Spurs, alongside Manchester United, reportedly keen on a move for the forward, it seems that a remarkable deal could very well be on for Pochettino’s men come the end of the campaign.
Landlord’s verdict: Gareth Bale may well have left Tottenham back in 2013 to fulfil his dream of playing for Real Madrid, but the 28-year-old could well be making a return to North London very soon.
And that’s because reports suggest that the Welshman has reached an agreement with president Florentino Perez about his departure in the summer, which is sure to come as a huge boost to Mauricio Pochettino, and indeed Manchester United, both of whom are thought to be interested in the forward.
And although things haven’t quite worked for Bale this term, there’s no doubting his quality, and as such Spurs could well look to clinch a deal for the wing wizard come the end of the season.
Tottenham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
