According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, via TEAMtalk, Tottenham could secure the permanent signing of Gareth Bale for as little as £13.4 million next summer – with parent club Real Madrid potentially put in a difficult spot as his contract looks set to expire in 2022.
Bale, who returned to Spurs on loan in one of the biggest headline-grabbing moves of the last transfer window, becoming part of the ‘super seven’ brought in by chairman Daniel Levy, is currently only at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on a temporary basis.
Should Spurs re-sign Gareth Bale for £13.4 million?
100%, get it done
No, let's see how this season goes
Bale could sign for a bargain fee
The Welshman has been working his way back to full match fitness in preparation for a long and gruelling fixture calendar – making a series of brief cameos before starting some recent encounters.
Bale bagged the winning goal during a 2-1 victory over Brighton 10 days ago, his first goal in a Lilywhites shirt since returning to north London, and it’s safe to say that we’re only just seeing the emergence of a star player who was omitted for months after a fall out with Zinedine Zidane.
As per Mundo Deportivo, with Real keen to get him off their wage bill permanently, they would be willing to sell for as little as £13.4 million – especially with the 31-year-old’s contract set to run out the following year.
Transfer Tavern take
Back in 2019, Danny Mills also told Football Insider that Bale would be a ‘top signing for Spurs‘ – with Levy now gifted the chance to secure him on a permanent deal for very little investment.
After this latest update, it’s safe to say Bale’s likelihood of returning when his current loan agreement ends looks stronger than ever.
