Writing for Football.London, reliable Tottenham journalist Alasdair Gold has detailed his latest information regarding the club’s efforts to secure a sensational return for Welsh cult hero Gareth Bale – and the reporter has claimed that chairman Daniel Levy could be willing to pay a ‘huge chunk‘ of the superstar’s wages.
Bale, who has been heavily linked with a return to north London over the past few weeks, is currently at the centre of wide spread reports suggesting a move to Spurs on loan is currently in the works.
Will Spurs get a Gareth Bale deal over the line?
Gold, writing for Football.London, has confirmed that talks are still ongoing and has outlined the numerous factors which could affect Bale potential arrival at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Spurs correspondent claims that both parties are ‘hopeful‘ over agreeing a loan deal and Tottenham are even prepared to take on the responsibility of paying a huge salary percentage.
Contrary to recent reports, with The Telegraph recently stating that Real Madrid would foot 50% of the bill, Gold has now said that Tottenham could be willing to pay a ‘huge chunk’ of his £600,000-per-week wages (before tax).
Potentially a statement of intent, this could indicate Levy’s desire to land Bale given Spurs’ recently complex financial situation due to the global pandemic.
Only time will tell whether Spurs pay a significant portion of his salary, but this update may just highlight the club’s eagerness to get a deal done.
