Tottenham Hotspur: Report makes major Gareth Bale transfer claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per Super Deporte, an update has emerged on Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer plans and it involves former fan favourite Gareth Bale.

The Lowdown: Another Bale return?

After the Wales international star spent 2020/2021 on loan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Lilywhites have surprisingly been linked with re-signing him yet again.

Speaking to El Chiringuito TV recently, journalist Eduardo Inda claimed that manager Antonio Conte had personally requested that Spurs snap up the Real Madrid forward over Eden Hazard.

Bale’s contract is set to expire in 2022 with the 32-year-old able to negotiate pre-contract free summer moves to other clubs in January.

Now, an update has emerged involving Tottenham as the club, and by extension transfer chief Fabio Paratici, allegedly eye a move.

The Latest: Spurs ‘most interested’…

According to Super Deporte, Tottenham are the ‘most interested’ team when it comes to signing Bale but want him on a free deal in summer 2022 as opposed to paying a fee in January.

Can you name all of these forgotten Spurs wonderkids? This guy was once called 'the next Didier Drogba'...

However, it is Conte who is set to have the ‘last word’ on this potential transfer as Spurs wait for the Italian to green light a move.

The Verdict: Avoid…

Bale finished last year as Tottenham’s third-most threatening player in the English top flight in terms of goals and assists combined behind superstar duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min (WhoScored), but we believe Conte should avoid another reunion.

His return to north London was also marred by fitness issues at various points with ex-boss Jose Mourinho even calling out Bale for an Instagram post on his condition (Wales Online).

Scoring a career total 183 goals, there is little doubting the forward can shine on his day, especially at international level – with Wales teammate Daniel James recently branding Bale ‘unbelievable’ (FIFA).

However, his injury record suggests that he isn’t a player Conte can rely upon regularly, not to mention his sky high salary demands could be too much of a financial strain on Tottenham when locked into a permanent deal.
