According to a report by the Daily Express, Tottenham Hotspur and chairman Daniel Levy look likely to be offered Gareth Bale on a permanent deal this summer – with parent club Real Madrid eager to sell and wanting to get his £600,000-per-week wages off their books.
Indeed, as per the outlet, Real want to clinch a permanent deal with Tottenham in order to bolster finances and potentially make a £135 million move for Paris-Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
Tottenham could be offered permanent Bale deal
Shifting Bale would help greatly in their pursuit of the World Cup winner, with the Galacticos now looking likely to offer Tottenham a chance to sign the Welshman permanently at the end of the season.
Jose Mourinho, branding the attacker ‘incredible‘ at the start of this season, began to utilise Bale very rarely – possibly due to fitness problems as figures in the media questioned if Spurs supporters will ever see the real Gareth Bale again.
After what has been a mixed start to his loan spell at Tottenham, the 31-year-old has since entered a fine run of form under Mourinho – recently putting in a Man of the Match display and running riot against Burnley (BBC).
Transfer Tavern take
The Tottenham boss then waxed lyrical over Bale and called him ‘better than ever‘ – but it remains to be seen whether Spurs will opt to sign him permanently from Real Madrid in the summer.
From this Daily Express report, Spurs seem very likely to at least be handed that chance at the end of the season, but it could all depend on Bale’s wage demands and the supposed transfer fee.
