Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy ‘repeatedly enquired’ over signing Gareth Bale, says Alasdair Gold - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to exclusive information shared by reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold, chairman Daniel Levy ‘repeatedly’ enquired over re-signing Spurs sensation Gareth Bale before the club eventually managed to secure a deal – with wages always being the main issue. 

After Tottenham completed a sensational double swoop on Friday, announcing both Bale and £27.5 million permanent signing Sergio Reguilon after the pair flew to London on a private jet, details surrounding the deal have now emerged.

Indeed, according to Gold, Bale had been on Spurs’ agenda for quite some time despite the explosion of developments from seemingly out of nowhere – with Levy having ‘repeatedly’ enquired over a move.

Will Gareth Bale become Tottenham's Player of the Season?

Yes, 100%, next level

The issue though wasn’t his desire to bring Bale back to the English capital, but more to do with his stunning wage demands getting in the way of any potential negotiation.

As detailed by football.london, a very public fall-out between the ‘unbelievable‘ star and Real boss Zinedine Zidane accelerated the Galacticos’ desperation to get Bale off their wage bill.

Real were even willing to pay a huge chunk of his salary if it meant even slightly reducing his expenses, an aspect of the deal which all but cemented Levy’s interest in a Bale reunion.

Now, after much enquiry and negotiation, Bale is a Tottenham player again over seven years after he left north London for the Bernabeu in a world record deal.
