Obviously, Tottenham need to make a statement signing this summer, and who better than their hero Gareth Bale? As you’ll remember all too fondly, he lit up White Hart Lane during his youth and would surely do the same in their new ground.
The Welshman has had a hit-and-miss time at Real Madrid, and it seems him and Zinedine Zidane just don’t see eye to eye. Now the Frenchman is back in charge it looks like he doesn’t have a future at the club. So, that’s where Daniel Levy needs to step in.
Marca, via Sport Witness, have claimed Spurs are an option for Bale but the club won’t go near Madrid’s valuation. That’s very typical of Levy, but if Bale forces a move, a loan back to where he made his name could reportedly be an option.
Certainly, he’d raise the excitement levels if he came back.
The mood is fairly high considering Spurs’ brave Champions League showing and their move to the new stadium. Now, the club need to prove they’re going to move forward and challenge for the title, though. Undoubtedly, signing Bale in his prime, at 29-years-old, would do just that.
It’s a romantic notion and the Welshman is often linked away but why not consider it? Alongside Harry Kane, the former most expensive footballer of all time could bring with him a winning mentality to really challenge the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
To truly push the aforementioned giants for a sustained amount of time, the club need to pull a rabbit out of a hat. They have the foundations in place but clearly need a big power play to jump that final hurdle. Bale, despite his injury issues, could be a big enough statement to do that.
He’s scored a whopping 102 goals and made 64 assists in 231 games since his move to Spain. That’s quite incredible, but he just doesn’t seem valued by anyone surrounding the club. At Spurs, he’d be the main man again and would have nothing to prove.
Bale would be their best signing since Heung-min Son and would undoubtedly improve this Spurs side. If Levy can sort the move, it’ll be one the fans look back on as a major turning point in the club’s history.
No pressure, Daniel Levy!
