The Wales international is hopeful of securing a move away, while Zinedine Zidane has come out and said the club ‘hopes he leaves soon’.
However, despite the Madrid manager’s desire for him to vacate the Spanish capital, the 30-year-old’s record for them remains impressive – 102 goals in 231 games and a part of the side which won four Champions Leagues in five seasons.
Yet now it seems his time is up at the Bernabeu and a return to Spurs has been touted, although there is also said to be interest from Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
But a return to the north London outfit has a major stumbling block surrounding the player’s wages.
There is a lot to consider with regards to the purchase of Bale and some Spurs fans have given a mixed reaction to the rejected offer by Spurs.
Here are just some of the responses:

No stop putting this on my TL. I can dream.

Cant really see us signing him because of his wages, but I will keep dreaming of him coming home.

This isn’t me saying I don’t want Gareth Bale back at Spurs. I wouldn’t be totally against it.
I don’t see how he will fit into our budget.
