The Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking ahead to next season. Indeed, after ensuring Champions League football in time for their new home. Indeed, though it wasn’t quite as good a season as those previous, our local Lillywhites are hopeful of a big summer.
With that in mind, following reports from Calcio Mercato claiming former White Hart Lane favourite Gareth Bale is keen on a move back to N17 over any other club but Real Madrid’s valuation of the Welshman is the sticking point have sparked quite the reaction.
One of the club’s greatest ever players, the idea of him coming back to add some star power and winning mentality to Spurs’ young side has thrilled some fans. Elsewhere, other punters think he’d prove too expensive, considering his recent injury record.
So, having said that, here’s a look at the way Twitter reacted to the latest Gareth Bale rumour.
Stop tweeting and set up the GoFundMe ffs!

Please don’t do this. Please. It’s the hope that gets you.

I've said this before and I will say it again….This 'Transfer' will simply not happen because of (A)….The transfer fee & (B)…his wages….Bale is on over £350, 000 a week…..he will not take a £200,000 pay cut to play for us. End off

It's not the transfer fee, it's the wages that make this a non-starter.
