Tottenham supporters in the Transfer Tavern are very much looking forward to the 2018/19 Premier League season, what with their club seeking to improve upon their impressive third place finish last term.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men deserve huge credit for sealing a third successive top four finish in the English top-flight, with the North Londoners backing up their second place finish in 2016 and third place the campaign after with another season of Champions League football. However, Spurs finished a hefty 23 points adrift of champions Manchester City last time round to suggest that a title challenge still remains some way off, although some big signings this summer could well propel them into contention this season.
And many of our resident Tottenham fans are likely to be intrigued by recent reports suggesting that Gareth Bale has yet to decide his Real Madrid future, with the Wales international reportedly concerned about his lack of first team football last season.
And these recent reports should prompt Spurs into making a move to re-sign the 28-year-old superstar, whose arrival would go some way to bringing world-class talent and trophy-winning experience to Pochettino’s side.
Ultimately, Bale earned his big money move to Real Madrid back in 2013 as a result of his incredible efforts for Tottenham, with the forward netting 56 goals and laying on 58 assists in 203 appearances for the North London club.
And he has since gone on to even better things in the Spanish capital by bagging 88 goals in 189 games for the European heavyweights, helping the club to four Champions League crowns, the La Liga title back in 2017, and several other honours along the way.
Thus, there is no doubt that the Welsh star would significantly bolster Pochettino’s starting eleven were he to move back to Spurs, at the same time further deepening the squad at the North London outfit to aid with their quest in the Champions League this time round.
And with history of producing the goods in the big games, not least this year’s Champions League final in which he scored one of the best goals seen in the competition, Bale would also bring a huge amount of winning experience to a Tottenham side that haven’t always produced their best in the most important moments and matches.
Yes, it will take an awful lot of money to lure the 28-year-old back to the club, but it’s the sort of deal Spurs must seek to strike to give their fellow Premier League title contenders something to think about heading into the new season.
As such, these reports should prompt the North Londoners into a big move for the forward, a move which could go some way to boosting their title chances.
Tottenham fans… what do you think? Let us know!
